The land that Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary is situated on originally belonged to the Andrews Family. The Andrews family members were strong supporters of the fledgling environmental movement, and daughter Frances developed a deep affection for wilderness, but especially for Hunt Hill. They worked with Aldo Leopold, Ernest Oberholtzer (“Father of the Boundary Waters”), Roger Tory Peterson, Owen Gromme, Ernie Swift, and many other conservationists. They helped establish the Wilderness Society. Besides Hunt Hill, they also owned land in the Boundary Waters on Rainy Lake, and on Isle Royale, which later was converted to part of that national park.Frances became the sole heir to the Andrews estate and decided late in life to donate Hunt Hill to the National Audubon Society as a nature education center in northern Wisconsin.
In 1986, after thirty-one inspirational years, the Audubon Camp was closed for financial reasons, with 200 adult campers a year experiencing programs at Hunt Hill. Rumors of selling the camp to developers motivated a small group of local Twin Cities and northern Wisconsin supporters to save the camp. In 1989, after incorporating as a non-profit corporation, the Friends of Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary (FOHHAS) secured a no-cost lease to reopen the camp under local direction. A broader environmental focus shifted to families, day camps for youth, and current environmental issues.

I took a family here to do a photo shoot one evening. There were multiple areas that lent themselves to wonderful back drops. There were benches to use, a wooden picnic table, stairs, and a wooden fence. The main paths are definitely wheelchair accessible too. Besutiful!
