The Babbitt Conservation Club is a group of folks who are interested in shooting, hunting, and conservation who has regular meetings and fun events. Our purpose is to give back to the environment and to the communities where we exist. One of our community activities is sponsoring the Youth Firearms Training classes. Meetings are the second Tuesday of the month April through October at 7:00 p.m. at the rifle range. Trap shooting Tuesday nights at 5:00 p.m. from June through September.
Located just south of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, the park shares a similar wilderness quality: pristine lakes, black bears, nesting eagles, wolves and moose. Stands of white and red pine trees tower over the birch, aspen and fir trees. Explore miles of shoreline by canoe. Swim at the beach, picnic in the shelter building, or fish for walleye, bass, crappies or trout. Trails in the park link-up with the Taconite State Trail and offer snowmobilers, skiers and hikers plenty to enjoy. Rent a three-bedroom guest house or camper cabin any season of the year.
Babbitt offers many recreational opportunities including a beach and boat landing on Birch Lake, walking and bike trails, parks located throughout the City, an ice arena, a Teen center and a skateboard park. Ski trails on the Babbitt Golf Course are groomed for classic and skate skiing.

Come as friends; become member or associate member if you would like, too.

Tour the historic underground mine or high energy physics lab, take a boat out or cast a line on Lake Vermilion, or hike through acres of old growth pine forest. The addition of nearly 3000 acres and five miles of Lake Vermilion shoreline in 2010 will no doubt add even more opportunities to experience the wonders of northern Minnesota.

Minnesota Discovery Center is a nonprofit institution and the state’s largest museum complex outside of the Twin Cities metro area. It features information about the land, the mines, the people and the work of the Iron Range region of northern Minnesota.
Comprised of a Museum, Research Center, and Park and encompassing 660 acres, Minnesota Discovery Center tells the story of the Iron Range through exhibits, interpretation, programming and research materials. The Center highlights the story of the predominantly European immigrants who migrated to this region at the turn of the 20th century to find work in the burgeoning iron ore industry.
