On Thursday night we will be spending the night at Audubon Center of the North Woods. After a lovely breakfast at the Audubon, we will head out to the Hinckley Fire Museum for a guided tour. Next, we will make our way to St. Croix State Park for a bag lunch in the Trail Center, a chat with the State Park Manager, and some time to explore the park. We will meet with DNR staff for a brief introduction about Scientific and Natural Areas at the Trail Center, before finishing our day with a guided exploration of the Kettle River SNA. We will return to Audubon with plenty of time to complete check-in for the full conference and get settled before dinner!
