A wonderful group of folks dedicated to protecting the environment and sharing environmental education experiences with others. You really feel like a part of the family. Peaceful sanctuary with hiking trails, benches, three lakes, prairie; and a wide assortment of birds, wildlife, wildflowers and trees. So many different kinds of programs from grandparents/grandkids adventures, to sustainable living, to winter camping, to the arts, to water quality, to stopping invasives, to dragonflies and buterflies.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching my grandchildren learn appreciation of nature and having so much fun outdoors.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more nature center display areas and outdoor classrooms, and a Visitors' Welcome Center.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Family feeling - so friendly, good information about nature, beautiful facilities

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very helpful, friendly, dedicated - small town folks who care.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save more land, add staff to expand programs, fund a long-term endowment for operations.

Ways to make it better...

I had had more time to enjoy more of the trails and programs

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting enough money to keep operating and growing, and finding a way to build a new nature center.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish Hunt Hill was closer and easier to access for more people who need it.

Fourteen years ago, I was asked to help with the search for an executive director of Hunt Hill. Every day since that time, I have help with many other volunteers in the development of this environmental
education center serving to educating youth and adults on being great Stewart's of this
planet. Many area public schools use this outdoor environmental labatory for their students for hands on experiences. It is truly an experience to observe and be part of this center.

Four of our grandchildren went to summer camp last summer and had such a fun learning experience that they are excited to pick the dates and return to Hunt Hill again this summer.

Hunt Hill is an amazing place that is open to all! Hunt Hill offers so many opportunities for people to enjoy. I first discovered Hunt Hill by simply looking for a place to hike. There are several beautiful trails available to the public at no cost. The property contains lakes, prairies, forests, wildlife, wild flowers and just about anything else a nature lover could hope for. Shortly after my first hike, I learned about all of the educational programming that is available. All of their programs are very affordable, many in the $5 range. The people that work at Hunt Hill are great and very accommodating. I teach at local school and they have allowed me to bring my kids out for a variety of service projects. Hunt Hill also offers a summer full of opportunities for kids, adults and families. I would highly recommend Hunt Hill for anyone who enjoys the outdoors!

In my 25 years of teaching at Hunt Hill I've seen over 1000 central city young people change their attitudes and feelings about the environmental aspects of air, water, land and stewardship. The dedicated staff guided them through a week of hands-on instruction that resulted in attitude changes that last through high school and into young adult life. By week's end, these participants have learned to survive without technology, make friendships with diverse cultures and appreciate the world around them. The testimonials by these participants indicates they have been deeply affected by their Hunt Hill experiences of canoing, outdoor learning classes and personal interactions. I believe Sigurd Olson and Aldo Leopold would be proud of this program.

My mother, my daughter and I went to Swedish Camp at Hunt Hill several years ago. My mother knew about Hunt Hill having been there for a Peace Corp reunion. She really wanted to go to Swedish camp and at 88 could not get there on her own. The three of us had a marvelous time together at this beautiful place. We all enjoyed the language classes and experiencing Swedish food, but the highlight for my daughter and myself was definitely the bog walk. We live in Virginia and wish we could find some place like Hunt Hill closer to home. It is a very special place.

Last year I volunteered at Hunt Hill after moving into the area. It is such a magical place, whether you enjoy the 10 miles of hiking trails, take the wonderful classes offered or join in the immersion camps. I was able to witness the joy and excitement in the children that attended day camps and young adults experiencing nature for the first time. It is there for everyone to enjoy...you can feel the magic when you drive in. I was hired as the Office Manager last fall....and every morning I leave home and when I get to Hunt Hill...I come home. I encourage people to come and join and be part of untouched nature at it's best.

Hunt Hill Audubon is a beautiful nature sanctuary that does an exceptional job educating thousands of children every year in outdoor activities. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and work hard on their role as educators and to maintain the land around their two lakes.

In August, 2012, I attended a week long Spanish immeresion class at Hunt Hill. It far exceeded my expectations, especially the stay at the camp. The staff without exception are all knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The place offered a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere for our class, making it all the more productive and enjoyable. For off hours, there are wooded hiking trails, a wealth of information about animals and plants, a swimming beach and boating and canoeing. Accomodations are rustic (so don't expect a 5 star motel!) but clean and convenient. All in all it was a very good experience.
