Sunday, July 3 from 11 am to 4 pm come visit Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center for the grand opening of our Nature Center, free admission all day long to both the Museum and the Nature Center. Various programs held throughout the day.
Ever since the formation of the Gunflint Trail Historical Society back in 2005 there has been a vision to create a nature center on Chik-Wauk property. After many years of planning and campaigning we are very proud to have this facility available for our visitors.
We utilized Split Rock Studios again to help create the interior displays with the help of a few key board and staff members. The Nature Center was created with a lot of open space for children and adults to explore the natural surroundings of our special place on the Gunflint Trail.
We would like to thank everyone that has been a part of this process through the many years.
It all started with a pile of dirt, now join us on Sunday to see the finished project!!
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center is located 55 miles up the Gunflint Trail National Scenic Byway (Cook County Highway 12), turn right on Moose Pond Drive then 1/4 mile drive in.
Don’t forget to look for our newest addition to Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center.
