Once Upon a Time...

A group of Sertomans set out to create a Holiday Family Tradition like no other. With strong support from our community and the hard work of many volunteers, Winter Wonderland was made a reality.

With excitement and anticipation families from all over unite at the Northland Arboretum to experience the spectacle of lights year after year.

Compost Site is Closed for the Season

The piles have been flipped and great compost is "cooking" for your gardens next spring!  Thank you to all who donated leaves and cash to make this compost site viable.  We will see you next spring!
If you still have leaves and clippings this fall, the Brainerd City Landfill is accepting, and so is Hengle Construction on 210 West of Baxter.


Photography Permits

All professional photographers need to stop into the visitor's center to sign liability waivers and pay fee. This includes senior portraits, weddings, children's photography, photos you sell, etc. This will also cover you and your client's daily pass fees.
