Wildlife Science Center

Wildlife Science Center was founded as a federally funded research facility in 1976, in order to observe and document the physiology and behavior of a captive population of gray wolves. Although the Center no longer receives federal funding, its distinctive research continues. However, since achieving 501(c)(3) status in 1991 it has concentrated its assets and knowledge on educational programming. It offers both on and offsite interactive presentations and overnight camping experiences to Minnesota youth by partnering with school and community-based organizations. Through its research and educational efforts, the WSC’s expertise is often sought by international, national, and regional institutions, regarding the care, handling, breeding, and ecological significance of wolves.

Lakers Junior Hockey

The Lakers date back to 1993 when owner and president, Ralph Hayne attended a meeting about the reformation of Junior Hockey in Minnesota. Hayne went to the meeting expecting to learn about Junior Hockey and unbeknownst to him at the time, walked out with his own affiliation.

Through out the years the Lakers have been through many changes; team colors and jerseys being a couple of them. In 2008, Hayne decided to go back to the Lakers roots and the new colors and uniforms are now what they originally were 15 years ago. “There is something to be said about tradition,” Hayne has said.

Junior hockey has traditionally been a place for hockey players to go before playing college hockey. Today the Lakers is a place for dedicated hockey players to improve their skills before trying out and playing college hockey. The Lakers have seen more than 80 of it’s players go on to play hockey at a higher level, whether it be college or the NHL.

The Lakers have consistently brought a positive atmosphere for it players. The team always travels together and has family style dining while out of town. And as Hayne puts it, “We’re a family.”

The Lakers moved this season to Forest Lake, MN. The Forest Lake Sports Center is building the team a new 1300 sq ft locker room. Hayne brought on a new coach, Dennis Canfield, that has a history of building the junior hockey team, not only resigned to player development, but as a community program.

Hayne is as passionate about his team as ever and is looking forward to many more seasons with his team.
