A Natural Setting in the North Woods
As serene as it is beautiful. Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, located just 15 minutes north of Downtown Milwaukee, presents guests with a natural setting in the north woods and provides the perfect space for weddings, retreats, business meetings, and many other special celebrations.
The name says it all. With six miles of scenic trails that take you through 185 unique acres of forest, ravines, wetlands, bluffs and a shoreline, you’ll be enveloped by a beautifully maintained regional habitat. Each season offers you something truly special regardless of your event type.
Schlitz Audubon Nature Center provides multiple locations in its main facility, perfectly suited to meet your expectations and capture your unique vision. The Great Hall, reminiscent of a north woods lodge, will greet you with a high two-storied beamed ceiling and a gorgeous stone fireplace.
Adjacent to the Great Hall is a cupola area and the Hearth Room, which contains an additional fireplace and veranda. Shift your attention outdoors with Schlitz’s Outdoor Pavilion, complete with a deck overlooking the ravine and surrounded by a beautiful natural setting.
For corporate functions, both an auditorium and conference room are available to take the team away from the office and transport them to a more relaxed setting. The auditorium features a large screen for digital presentations and an LCD projector and includes a low stage and podium.

“Beautiful place to have a wedding. Attended a wedding here. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Anything you needed they tried to assiste us with. And price is reasonable. Very rustic and nature filled scenery and area. Just all together beautiful and well put together. What a wonderful place to make memories.”
“We chose to hold both our ceremony and our reception at the nature center, which made for a seamless transition for both ourselves and our guests. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and fit our vision perfectly. It made for gorgeous photos and our guests had overwhelmingly positive feedback!”
“This place is amazing! Great Lake Michigan views just add to the awesomeness of this place. I was lucky enough to land here on Xtreme Raptor Day. They have all their raptors out to see. It’s a special day. Anytime of year is great to visit.”
