    The American Association for Nude Recreation is the largest, most long-established organization of its kind in North America. With roots dating to 1931, we have grown from our humble beginnings to an organization that has served 213,000 individuals throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and beyond.

     Clothes-free recreation is about body acceptance. We provide a safe, wholesome experience that promotes a better body image and respect of others. Children grow up with greater self esteem, and less likely to confuse nudity with sex. They have a greater understanding of human anatomy and learn not to be ashamed of their body. We promote positive values through healthy lifestyle habits. Plus it's fun!

     The mission of The Naturist Society is to promote body acceptance through clothing-optional recreation using the tools of education and community outreach. The Naturist Society views clothing-optional recreation as essential to body acceptance. Through clothing-optional recreation, participants, be they individuals, couples or families, learn to appreciate the diversity of body types and gain a better understanding and acceptance of their own bodies.

     ANRL is a “Research Library” that has a huge collection of Books, Magazines, Pictures, DVDs, Audio Cassettes and other material focusing on the Nudist Lifestyle from it’s early history in this country to the present. Numerous researchers have visited ANRL and have found valuable information for their research projects.

     The International Naturist Federation is an organization consisting of member federations in over thirty countries. Together with other interested parties involved in naturist activities, the INF-FNI works to enhance and improve the naturist experience and the naturist business climate by promoting the benefits of naturism to the general public.

     The Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN) is Canada's national nudist organization. Along with the Fédération québécoise de naturisme, the FCN represents and promotes the naturist lifestyle as wholesome, healthy, and enjoyable.


Local Nudist Organizations

(Near the Minneapolis Saint Paul Area)

     Avatan was founded in 1961 and is located on 40 acres of rolling woodland just 30 minutes north of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The attractive and secluded grounds offer a safe and beautiful environment for your entire family to enjoy the nudist lifestyle.

     Minnesota Naturists -  You might also call us nudists. We enjoy being naked. We practice social nudism. We’ve come together as Minnesota Naturists to find others who also enjoy being nude and to discover places and events where we can be nude more freely. We do not own a park or resort, but instead find opportunities where we can — in members’ homes, rented facilities or with our friends at clubs in Minnesota and elsewhere. We are always looking for new places we can be nude, new things we can do while nude and new friends who will understand us, support us and join us.

     Rising Sun Farm is nestled in the rolling hills of western Wisconsin just east of Minneapolis-St. Paul. The beautiful landscape and quiet charm lends itself wonderfully to naked farming. We greet visitors, arriving on foot from the parking area, by a sign that both welcomes and notes that our workers may be nude. Our goal at Rising Sun Farm to enjoy living healthfully while providing the most nutritious and flavorful food we know how to grow for ourselves and our customers. We embrace most of the usual components of a healthy lifestyle, but some controversial ones as well. Our research and experiences since our beginning in the mid 70’s have taught us much.

     Minnesota Sno-birds - We are a family oriented club but do accept singles providing they meet our membership requirements.  We believe in maintaining the Principles and Standards set forth by the AANR and will require it of all our members. The use of drugs and swinging activities are totally unacceptable. We do not care what your religious, political beliefs, nationality or color is, but we do insist that your conduct be a credit to the AANR and to the SNO-BIRDS.
