Hubachek Wilderness Research Center | Ely, MN

Winter Activities Update

Hubachek Wilderness Research Center is operational year-round but quieting as winter arrives. Students from Vermilion Community College in Ely work toward replacing internship hours lost due to COVID cancellations. They are applying their skills to Continuous Forest Inventory plot maintenance and spruce budworm impact assessment. Facilities maintenance activity is ongoing as is wildlife data collection via camera traps. Requests for new research projects at the HWRC are being accepted.
