Hawk Woods Lodge  
The two-story log cabin Lodge at the E. Dale Fisk Hawk Woods Nature Center is available to rent and use year round.  In an effort to provide more recreational and educational opportunities for the community during the winter, the city recently installed a small, forced-air furnace in the Lodge that takes the chill right out of the air to make it comfortable to use in all four seasons.

This unique facility, located in what seems like the middle of the woods up-north, is an ideal place for off-site business meetings, birthday parties, and family get-togethers – and it’s available all year long!  The Lodge is an affordable and unique alternative for your next outing The Lodge will be closed for replacement beginning December 7, 2018 and is expected to reopen in winter 2020.
