Nestled in the wooded, glacial hills of Washburn County, Hunt Hill is one of northern Wisconsin’s most beautiful and diverse natural areas. Situated on nearly 600 acres of majestic forests, meadow, bogs and pristine glacial lakes, our Audubon Sanctuary offers an ideal setting to experience nature.

The summer season always finds Hunt Hill alive with wildlife. Paddle quietly through our calm waters while you search the shores for our nesting osprey and loon, or the concealed lodges of beavers and elusive otters. Discover the world of carnivorous plants on our floating bog or the varieties of wildflowers in our prairie. Bring your GPS unit and discover the many geocaches hidden around camp.

Our property features beautiful butterfly gardens and flowers. Many of the perennials planted around the barn were donated from a neighbor, Theresa Sigmund, who had cultivated lovely flower gardens on her own property over the years.

We also grow many of our vegetables right on site. Volunteer gardeners grow a variety of vegetables using TLC and our own homemade compost!

Our rain gardens feature different blossoms throughout the summer. These rain gardens were established with the help of the Long Lake Preservation Association, WDNR and volunteers. Not only are they beautiful, but they use native water-hardy plants to act as a buffer for water before it enters our watershed.
