Siobhan Richardson Field Station

This secluded 2,000 square foot lakeside Field Station is surrounded by mature aspen forest. To lighten our carbon footprint, participants are asked to walk in and out of this location. The 20 minute fresh air hike passing the Bison Prairie and following along the lake is the perfect way to decompress before and after meetings. Ideal for corporate retreats of up to 35 participants, the Field Station is available year-round.  Interested in an overnight option? Three architecturally unique cabins each sleep 10 in a common style space with a personal window onto the natural world at each bed.

See you there!
