 About the Treehaven Facility

The Treehaven Facility, Tomahawk, Wisconsin

Treehaven CampusTreehaven's mission is guided by the Treehaven Board of Advisors with support from the Friends of Treehaven, a group of volunteers who raise funds to support programs, land management, and buildings of the center. Treehaven hosts a wide variety of year-round programming in environmental and natural resource education. Programs range in scope from working with school aged children in environmental lessons to adult weekend workshops in topics such as snowshoe construction or wolf ecology. With our 1,400 acres of "north country" forest and wild lands, Treehaven is a great place to work and meet new people. About Treehaven

Online Registration Tips:

FOR SCHOOL GROUPS:

Select ONE email address for your entire school group, preferably the attending chaperone.  The person whose email is associated with a school group (or individual student) will receive ALL the correspondence related to the program such as the registration confirmation, payment information, and workshop placement emails. Please do not have students register themselves using student email accounts because the attending chaperone will not receive the registration confirmation for these individuals. 

You may register online many times.  Each time you register (assuming you want people grouped together), use the same school name and email address for each person associated with your group.  Each time you register completely through the payment screen, you create a new “order” and each order has a separate confirmation and order number.  When it is time for your invoice (should you need a copy), we are able to view all your orders to create one complete invoice.

Register online quickly. The program will time out in approximately 30 minutes. If you have a lot of students, register them in batches using the same school name and email address.  Each new group registered will be on multiple orders but still under your school name.

Online registration-editing mistakes:

You can only make changes to registrations on the summary page where you see an "edit" button.  If you went to the payment area, you missed the opportunity to make changes. At this point, you can no longer make changes to your order.  If you think you made a mistake, just contact us. at 715-346-3838. We will take care of it for you!

Confirmation Emails After You Register (two are sent)

Confirmation Email #1:
Your first email confirms registration to the program, payment due, and allows you to see the information selected for each person.  You may contact us with changes at this point.   If you did not register students all at one time, you will have multiple confirmation emails with a few people on each email. PLEASE REVIEW CONFIRMATION LETTERS FOR ACCURACY. 

Workshop Placement Email #2:  
This is sent to email address associated with the attending person (typically to the school chaperone or parent) on the Friday prior to the event. The email contains the three workshops the student will attend and contains additional program details.
