North House Folk School Northern Landscapes Festival
All are welcome at the annual North House Folk School Northern Landscapes Festival on May 29-31, 2020 at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minnesota. Spring is an explosion of life in the North! Discovering the birds, wildflowers, insects and more of this dynamic and rich northern landscape is the focus of this festival. Participation in the festival is open to anyone interested in hands-on learning and curious about the dynamics of the northern landscape.
More than a dozen field-focused courses form the backbone of the event, with evening presentations rounding out the full weekend schedule. We welcome back many favorite offerings, including Lichens: Pioneers of the Northwoods, Boreal Birding Workshop with Bob Janssen, Wildlife Tracking through Remote Camera Photography and Birding by Ear with Ann Russ. New this year: Spring Birding with Michael Karns and Raptors of the North Shore with Michaela Brevig.

About the North House Folk School
North House Folk School, host of the annual Wooden Boat Show and Summer Solstice Festival, was founded in 1997 by a small handful of inspired locals passionate about traditional craft and cooperative learning. When we published the first catalog of 12 courses (including Inuit kayak building, Scandinavian bowl carving, and canoe paddle making), North House didn’t yet have a home — or even a classroom. However, two old forest service buildings on the harbor serendipitously became available, and North House settled in and began building a campus. Campus has changed and expanded over the years, but those two original buildings — the red building and the blue building — are still at its heart. North House has thrived over the ensuing two decades, and now hosts over 350 classes and 3,000 students per year, and connects students and instructors from all over the state, country, and world.
