Half day camps run 9am-noon and 1-4pm with a lunch hour program (for an additional cost) inbetween for those who want a full day experience. Camps offered for youth ages 4-9 and scholarships are available. Registration is open.

Smile with holiday shopping

Words From Nature is a new business created for an Entrepreneurship project at the University of Minnesota Duluth. This business allows customers to customize their home decor by creating their own alphabet letter art. The large collection of letters are pictures from the outdoors and illustrate the beauty of nature. All of the pictures were taken by three young entrpreneurs and only offered by them.One of the things their business prides itself on is giving back to the community. All of the profits from our first thirty days of sales will be donated to the Hartley Nature Center. They chose HNC because"Hartley Nature Center is unique in the fact that unlike most other nature centers, Hartley is not funded by any state, county, or municipal agencies, and therefore operates solely on program fees, memberships, grants and private donations. Since our business is dependent on pictures from nature, we felt it was fitting to give back to a local nature center that does so much for the community."
