Outdoor Fun in the Mitten

February 11-13, 2022

Join the Michigan Alliance for Environmental and Outdoor Education for our 3rd Annual Wildlife Weekend.  Hosted at the Ralph A. MacMullan Center on beautiful Higgins Lake, this weekend exploration of wildlife and the outdoors is the perfect getaway to escape from the blahs of winter.  Outdoor explorations, indoor activities, and evenings in front of a fireplace are all part of the experience.

Two sessions to choose from:

Raising Winter Wild Children

Winter: Where the Wild Things Are?



MAEOE Members: $310 for single rooms; $290 for a shared room

Includes six meals and two nights lodging and an entire weekend of education about Michigan outdoors in the winter.  Arrive Friday evening, and depart after lunch on Sunday (just in time for the Super Bowl game)!

Session 1:
Raising Winter Wild Children

Are you a teacher, parent or grandparent? Then you know the challenges of getting kiddos OUTDOORS in winter. MAEOE's Wildlife Weekend has you covered! During this session we will explore unique and engaging ways for Grown-ups & the kids in their lives to get outside this winter. Get ready for adventures that will take kids beyond traditional winter fun. We'll keep things simple, hands-on and inclusive for all skill levels and backgrounds. Reignite your LOVE for Michigan's winter wonderland and foster that same sense of wonder in the next generation! Reminder: Wildlife Weekend is for adults only.


Winter: Where the Wild Things Are

Ever wonder where all the animals are during winter?  Want to go find them?  We will explore different animal’s ways of coping with freezing temperatures, frozen water, and all of the other joys of a Michigan winter.  We will go out and look for those who are still active, and explore where the rest of the wild things are.
