Our facility, including Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool, will be closed today,
Friday, March 10th, due to the winter storm.

As always, you’re invited to hike our trails, which are open daily from dawn until dusk.

Welcome! Our facility is open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

Wearing a face mask indoors is optional. Because we are a childcare facility and follow public health protocols, we have limited access to some public offerings and areas of our facility. We appreciate your patience as we work to find a healthy balance of access and safety for our community.

As always, our grounds and trails featuring self-guided tours are free and open daily from dawn until dusk.

Animal Tracks

Looking for animal tracks is a great way to engage with nature and discover interesting facts about the animals that left them. Mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates all leave tracks behind that we can find and track. Be patient with yourself as you learn about tracking animals, it’s been said that learning to identify tracks is akin to learning a new language. Get started with these guides for some of our favorite animals.
