Siobhan Richardson Field Station

Daily Rental: $475 (1/2 day rates available)

Overnight cabin pricing available on request

Mature aspen forest surrounds this secluded 2,000 sq.ft. field station. We encourage visitors to walk or carpool in and out of this venue to lighten the carbon footprint.

The 20-minute fresh air hike passing our Bison Prairie and along the lake is the perfect way to decompress before and after meetings. This venue is ideal for up to 35 participants and is available year round. For overnight stays, two cabins each sleep 10 in a common-style space with a personal window at each bed looking onto the natural world.

Non-profit rates are available for daytime meeting rentals.
