Natural Beauty

With over 240 acres of natural features surrounded by the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, the Steger Center is a wonderful place to explore, reflect and collaborate. Swim, paddle or fish on Pickett’s Lake, gather berries and fresh vegetables, or just reflect and collaborate with the Steger Center community. The property manages a 50-year forestry plan to replant native white pines and is a demonstration model for climate resiliency. The wilderness area is recognized as a Dark Sky sanctuary, one of the most remote and darkest places in the world. Experience the preservation of an unpolluted night sky, pristine waters, and woods.
