Offered in partnership with the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program
This 5 day kayak/camping adventure will take you on and around Isle Royale National Park, known for it's pristine wilderness, rustic camping, and the famous moose and wolves! The group will receive guided kayaking and fully outfitted camping accommodations.
Isle Royale National Park preserves 132,018 acres of federally designated wilderness. According to the National Park Service, around 11,000 years ago, two miles of ice pressed down on Isle Royale, sculpting its topography. This same ice sheet formed Lake Superior and hundreds of inland lakes, ponds, and bogs. Isle Royale is home to 18 mammal species including fox, wolves, moose, otter, and beaver. Diversity of habitat makes the island a great bird watching location. Woodpeckers, gulls, herons, wrens, and sandhill cranes are a few of the birds you’re likely to see.
The ecological study of wolves on Isle Royale is the longest running large mammal predator-prey
study on earth.
