Wokrshop Planning Guide and Important Documents

For 70 years the Trees For Tomorrow experience has transformed the lives of students by immersing them for a few days in the heart of the northern forest. Our professional teaching staff is expert at using field studies and hands-on activities to awaken student awareness of the land's capabilities and limitations, and to inspire student enthusiasm for sustainable forest stewardship.

Throughout the year groups of 30 to 90 elementary, middle, and high school students, along with their teachers, travel to the  TFT campus in Eagle River from a three state area of Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois for student workshops. Visiting schools stay at TFT’s campus for 2-4 night stays. Local area schools visit TFT’s campus for one hour programs, a full day, or even stay overnight for further natural resources programming. 

Over 5000 visiting students annually stay with their classmates in comfortable, furnished dormitories, eat three meals a day in a full service dining hall, and prepare for field studies in the classrooms of TFT's Education Hall. During a workshop, students participate in field studies conducted in the forests, lakes, streams and bogs of the Northwoods. The field studies involve activities like tree identification, orienteering, wildlife tracking, water chemistry sampling and dozens of others. These activities not only familiarize students with the plants and animals of the forest ecosystem, they also demonstrate how forests and other natural resources can be sustained through conservation and proper management.

Workshop Planning
We can assist with workshop planning and transportation needs. Scholarships and financial incentives are available for many groups. School groups are encouraged to fundraise to offset the cost of the trip. For some ideas that are unusual and good for the environment, check-out our Fundraising Ideas.

Home School Groups 

Trees For Tomorrow offers special workshops for home school groups. TFT programs are designed for students ages 10 and over. Parent/teachers of homeschoolers are encouraged to attend with their children so that they can chaperone and pick up teaching techniques.

Contact us today for more information on putting together a workshop for you and your Home Schoolers.

Note: If children under 10 years of age are brought with the family or group, it will be the parent's responsibility to provide supervision for the younger children while the courses are taking place.
