A Natural Destination for Discovery

Enriching lives and inspiring an ethic of care for Wisconsin's Northwoods through the facilitation of connections among people, nature and community.

Upcoming Special Event

The Big Event is the Discovery Center's primary fundraising event, raising dollars to support naturalists and their programming, plus operations.  Taking place on site, guests enjoy a comprehensive silent auction while reuniting with their summer friends. Appetizers, wine, beer and shopping sets the stage for a fabulous gourmet sit-down dinner under the big tent.  Exotic one-of-a-kind experiences are offered for bidding at the live auction that rounds out the evening.

This year’s theme is Discovering New Pathways and the Fund-a-Wish project is Gardens & Grounds; the center’s naturalists will fill you in on details that night!
