Year-Round Nature-Focused Venue For Your Next Conference or Staff Retreat

Open year-round, with lodging, meal service and program options, the Audubon Center of the North Woods is the ideal location for a winter staff retreat – 7 miles of trails, cross-country ski and/or snowshoes available for use.

ACNW is available to host your group’s meeting, conference, retreat, reunion or getaway in any season. Our beautiful lakeside property, convenient central location and year-round facilities are ideal for any size group. The quiet beauty of nature that surrounds us on our 780-acre sanctuary and the range of offerings here at the Center makes us the ideal venue for conferences, meetings and gatherings, large or small.

Winter is a special time here at the Center. We have over 7 miles of trails through a variety of habitat, including old growth forest, managed forest, wetlands, and restored prairie. Snowshoes and/or cross-country skis are available for guest use at no additional charge. Our unique site provides a wonderful setting for your meeting or gathering; quiet and secluded, surrounded only by the beauty of the Minnesota outdoors. We do not allow ATV’s or snowmobiles on our property, so you can be assured of a quiet and peaceful visit for your group.

Whether you are looking for a location for a short staff outing or day-long meeting, have a weekend retreat needing meals and lodging, want to schedule a company party or banquet, or need to rent the entire center for a larger group, ACNW provides a conveniently located, affordable and natural setting for your group or event – any time of year.
