Our goal is to inspire the next generation of Northwoods stewards through the legacy of Dorothy Molter. The following educational resources are provided with the hope they will do just that.
Dorothy Molter Education Guide
The Dorothy Molter Education Guide was created to help formal and informal educators inspire youth at 4th-6th grade learning levels.
This 16-page guide is flexible so that it may be used in the classroom as a stand-alone unit, as a pre-visit activity guide or a post-visit review.
Dorothy’s Birds Coloring Pages
Dorothy had very little experience in the Northwoods before moving to Isle of Pines. Birdwatching helped her become familiar with her wilderness surroundings and its inhabitants, and became one of her favorite hobbies.
These coloring pages are excerpts from the Dorothy Molter Coloring Book produced by the Dorothy Molter Museum.The full coloring book may be purchased for $4.95.
Leaving No Trace as a Northwoods Steward
Although, our natural resources were managed and protected differently during Dorothy’s life, she still had a strong appreciation and respect for nature. Over time, we continue to discover new ways to preserve the wilderness integrity of our wild spaces for future generations to enjoy. Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics has created a variety of educational resources to help educators share the philosophy of being a good Northwoods steward with youth.
Wilderness First Responders’ Scholarship
Dorothy was always concerned with the physical well-being of others and gave freely of her medical knowledge to all who came her way. As a way to give back to the community that supported Dorothy, the Dorothy Molter Memorial Foundation (Dorothy Molter Museum) will award one scholarship per year up to $1,000.00 from the Wilderness First Responders’ Fund. This scholarship is funded by contributions made from staff, board, volunteers, members and guests of the Dorothy Molter Museum. Scholarship availability will be promoted to Ely Area residents interested in enhancing their medical expertise in the following ways:
• Certification in nursing, emergency medical services, wilderness medical services
• Recertification/renewal of training
