Join the Conservation

Let’s celebrate the Great Lakes Outdoors! We offer opportunities to learn about and support conservation efforts in the Great Lakes region. Many of the stories are written by outdoor professionals whose passion and expertise comes through in the words and images. The knowledge and experience from conservation professionals is cutting edge and often absent in mainstream media or academic papers. If you are concerned about wilderness, preservation and the sustainable management of the natural and cultural resources of the Great Lakes region (and we all should be), you are in the right place. These stories are for you.

The courses and expeditions offered here have a Western Great Lakes conservation focus. We are working with area conservation professionals and tribal agencies to ensure you are getting the most up-to-date and relevant information. Our hope is that you will appreciate and one day even continue the work.

Glacial Trails Outdoors is an environmental education and project of Great Lakes Geographic.
