The DNR has modified public access to several locations, activities and services to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Some indoor locations remain closed.
Please check our DNR COVID-19 Response webpage for the latest information, and our COVID-19 FAQ webpage for answers to many of your questions on fishing, hunting, trails, parks, burn permits, camping and more.
Conference Meeting Space
The Education Building at the RAM Center holds five separate conference spaces that can accommodate between 56 and 250 people in a theater-style setting. There are two additional conference rooms - the Lounge Room in the Resource Building (where the Dining Hall is located) and the Straits Lodge Meeting Room. These rooms can be set up in a variety of ways: classroom, theater, "U" shape or boardroom with a reduced capacity depending on setup.
