Environmental / Science Experience

Wildacres Retreat has hosted a wide variety of science and environmental groups.  The retreat offers a range of spaces that such groups find fit their needs perfectly.  These groups use both indoor spaces as well as our extensive grounds for their workshops and learning.  Groups at Wildacres have the opportunity to really get away from outside distractions and focus on connecting through education and dedicated time to connect. All stays at Wildacres include lodging, family-style meals in our dining hall, use of program facilities, and full access to our extensive hiking trail system.
