Winter Family Escape
Audubon Center of the North Woods in Sandstone is helping families escape the hustle and bustle of the holiday season by hosting an all-inclusive, four-day and three-night winter stay from December 27 to 30.
Families can participate in such programs as climbing and snow zoo building, and educational presentations such as Minnesota Mammals and Winter Ways of Native Cultures. Other activities include cross-country skiing, kick-sledding, sleigh rides and crafts.
Each room has bunk-style beds and sleeps up to six or eight people. Delicious, healthy, wholesome meals, each prepared with creativity and taste, are served in a large dining room with a beautiful stone fireplace and views of the woods and lake.
Accommodations include a private room for each family. Crosby Lodge rooms (filled first) have private baths; Lowry Lodge rooms have shared baths.
Cost: $165 to $275 per person; those who register before November 28 receive 10-percent discount. Location: Audubon Center of the North Woods, P.O. Box 530, Sandstone. For more information, visit [email protected] or Audubon-Center.org.
