Our Outreach Department offers many activities for Forest County Potawatomi Community members. These range from weekly science and nature activities at the Tribe’s preschool to nature hikes, summer camp, and high school and college internships with the Land and Natural Resources Division.

Call (715) 478-4507 or email Kayla.Drescher@fcp-nsn.gov if you would like to set something up for your class or club.
