Field Station

The Wildlife Research Institute conducts field operations from the Northwoods Research Center, a field station between Eagles Nest Lake and Woods Lake, 14 miles west of Ely, Minnesota. Ninety miles north of Duluth, the Northwoods Research Center is 5 miles from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and 27 miles from Canada. The property is 50 acres of forest, meadow, streams, lakes, and wetland. The forest is a transition forest between northern hardwoods and boreal forest, so it is unusually diverse. Consequently, the wildlife is unusually diverse.

Please note that the field station is not open to the public.
