"The Audubon Society facility is a great, nearby getaway for our offsite meeting. Everyone attending appreciated the quiet, peaceful settingwhich helped us disconnect from our day-to-day frantic environment. Wewere able to focus and get to work right away. The staff were veryfriendly and helpful, and I know we’ll return."
