As a gesture of good will, the Nature Center waives the rental fees if you are a non-profit organization whose primary function is working with the youth. The events must be chaperoned. For all rentals, a $25 refundable cleaning deposit is required. When you are finished using the building, we ask that it be left in the same condition as when you arrived. A checklist is provided at the center.
If you are a nonprofit organization, the cost is $25 to rent just the gathering space and $35 for the gathering space and kitchen areas.
For-profit and private individuals and groups (family reunions, birthdays, etc.) the cost is $60 to rent just the gathering space and $65 for the gathering space and kitchen areas.
All equipment, with the exception of kayaks, is free to rent for all members.
During the winter you can rent cross country skis, poles, and boots to fit every age.
We have limited pairs of aluminum snowshoes, so please plan ahead.
We have several GPS units available to rent for a day of geocaching! Each GPS unit comes with a list of the geocaches we have on site, and a user guide.
Kayak rentals are available through the City of Fertile during regular hours M-F 8am-5pm. Call 218-945-3136 for more infomation.
