“There’s one or more instructors on every trip to lead the way, offer tips on technique, and let participants know what they need to do to stay safe on any given adventure,” said Jodi Fox Engleman, Nicolet Community Education specialist.

“There’s a comfort level for participants, especially when it comes to exploring new places, in having an experienced outdoor instructor on each adventure.”

Other more unique upcoming classes include the popular Ice Cream Float, the Sunset Paddle, birding during the annual hawk migration along Minnesota’s North Shore, wild rice gathering, fly fishing, and the Best of the Superior Hiking Trails.
