About Us

The Ralph A. MacMullan Center has served as a conservation education facility for more than 75 years, promoting an appreciation of Michigan's natural, historical and cultural heritage.

It is nestled on the Northern shore of Higgins Lake and it boarders North Higgins Lake State Park. It is just down the road from the CCC Museum, a fitness trail and much more.
The RAM Center provides a recreational retreat for nonprofit, government and education-based organizations, as well as private businesses with an outdoor or green-themed agenda.
