"Spaces and Places" - part 1
The Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural, and Educational Center
The quaint western town of Salmon, Idaho, provides the ideal destination for your next retreat or group getaway. Though less than three hours drive from the hubs of Missoula, MT, and Idaho Falls, ID, event attendees will feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Additionally, year-round flights from Boise, ID, make transportation easy and convenient for visitors from all over. Beautiful, well-equipped meeting facilities, ample lodging options, and endless options for activities combine to make Salmon a hassle-free event destination.
On the edge of town, the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural, and Educational Center provides everything an event planner needs to arrange the perfect gathering, ranging from small retreat to large convention–and everything in between. The sprawling park boasts several indoor and outdoor gathering options, all with a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. The Center can be rented by entirety or by area.
Though there is no on-site lodging, the Center meets all other gathering needs. A full-kitchen includes two ovens, a range, microwave, dishwasher, triple sink, and preparation and service supplies. Tables and chairs are available to outfit indoor areas, and local rental options can be utilized for additional or outdoor seating. The Learning Center (LC) is equipped with wireless internet, two projectors, and other presentation needs. A sound trailer and event tent are also available for rent.
The Learning Center
The Learning Center (LC) offers indoor space upstairs and down perfectly equipped for meetings, workshops, conferences, or classes. The Meriwether Theatre is a rustic barn with stadium-style seating that would be a unique option for speakers, performances, concerts, or ceremonies. Outdoor spaces include the Amphitheater, Picnic Area, and Ranch Yard, suitable for picnics, reunion gatherings, parties, small festivals, or weddings.
When not participating in organized activities, event attendees will enjoy exploring the 71-acre grounds. Two nature trails criss-cross the area, with interpretive stops and learning opportunities along the way. When snow covers the ground, visitors can also enjoy a groomed cross-country ski trail. Additionally, the Interpretive Center cannot be missed.
