Otter Bridge, the Amazon, Berry Heaven, Top of the World, and the Trail of No Return. Come to the 2013 Young Naturalist Programs for youth entering grades 2 -12. Students hike the extensive trail network, canoe the spring-fed waters of Spearhead Lake, identify plants and animals in woods and wetlands, and learn ecology by playing games, listening to stories, and crafting art. The Neilson Spearhead Center, owned by the Mississippi Headwaters Audubon Society, is a 460 acre nature preserve surrounding Spearhead Lake, located about 9 miles from Bemidji, just west of Lake Plantagenet. It is a perfect setting for young people to experience Minnesota’s Northwoods!
