Help Us Build Informed Leaders

Every day we make choices that impact the environment. Each of us depends on the Earth’s resources for our survival, our health and our happiness. At the Audubon Center of the North Woods, we model environmentally responsible decision-making through experiential education and sustainable energy practices to over 10,000 learners each year. Those learners then share the informed decision-making model with others.

Your contribution will help us sustain our high quality programs and to meet our mission:

To instill a connection and commitment to the environment in people of all communities through experiential learning

Of every dollar you donate, 86% goes directly back into these initiatives, with only 13% going to administration. Please show your belief in the Audubon Center of the North Woods by making a financial contribution. We greatly appreciate any help you can provide in furthering our mission.

Midwest Leader in Experiential Education

For over 40 years, the Audubon Center of the North Woods has been creating life-changing experiences that lead to more informed decision makers.

  • Residential and day-program K-12 programs with a curriculum that ranges from ecology, environment and energy to cultural studies to science and wildlife to adventure and team-building (all of our K12 classes are aligned with MN Academic Standards)
  • Outreach and naturalist-in-residence programs
  • Youth, adult and family camps
  • Road Scholar programs
  • Nationwide college courses
  • State and national teacher trainings and retreats
  • Community gatherings featuring environmental topics and renowned speakers

Our programs connect a wide variety of people with the environment, many for the first time.

By working with all audiences, we create leaders in the field of the environment that spans generations, disciplines and the globe.

Worldwide Impact

We believe learning is enhanced when put in a worldwide context. Development of a ‘sense of place’ and realization of their current and potential ‘impact on this planet’ is a first step leading students to embrace responsibility. International naturalists bring insights and experience from their own cultures and take back the knowledge, skills, and abilities to nurture environmentally responsible initiatives in their home countries.

Sustainable Energy Modeling

The Audubon Center continues to be a statewide leader in renewable energy as seen immediately when a visitor enters the grounds. Solar thermal and photo voltaic panels, geothermal heating and cooling and a wind turbine are demonstrations of our commitment to sustainable energy technologies and shows audiences what they can do in their own schools, businesses and homes. We are furthering our commitment to improve efficiency in all our buildings and increase the amount of renewable energy produced on-site.
