2012 The State of Superior: A WTLC Here at Home Tour for K-12 Educators

This year’s WTLC tour explored Wisconsin’s northwestern sector, north of Hwy 8 and mostly west of Hwy 13. Teachers on the tour found out what sets this area apart culturally, economically, politically, historically and geographically. The tour allowed participants to:

  • Visit several Ojibwe reservations
  • Explore mining practice and policy in the Penokee-Gogebic Range
  • Learn on-site about the Lake Superior watershed and shoreline
  • Stay overnight at a former CCC camp in the Chequamegon National Forest
  • Examine the dynamics and damage of severe weather in Burnett County
  • Visit stronghold ethnic communities like Finns in Hurley
