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.

Specialized Partnerships

Let’s work together to customize a specialized package, in alignment with your organization’s goals. 
The value of your partnership is commensurate with the value of your contribution.

We accomplish this by:

  • Engaging students with interactive experiences that connect them with nature and fosters exploratory and intergenerational learning, enhances independence and self-confidence, and encourages lifelong fitness.
  • Educating students on the importance of practicing respect for the environment, as well as themselves and others, helping them understand their role as responsible citizens and reaching their full educational potential.
  • Empowering students to develop critical communication, cooperative, and leadership skills—enabling them to successfully compete in a challenging and changing world.

Far less known are the impressive results the Aldo Leopold Nature Center has produced for its corporate partners. Because we can reach consumers directly in their homes and through proven media support, including collectively sharing $10,000+ worth of advertising through our Media Partners: Madison Media Partners (Wisconsin State Journal, The Cap Times), Wisconsin Public Radio, and WKOW TV-27, we can offer excellent recognition benefits to our partners. Our partners have discovered that in addition to increasing name recognition, brand awareness, and employee and community appreciation, a partnership with the Aldo Leopold Nature Center elevates your company’s reputation by connecting you with a meaningful local cause.

The Aldo Leopold Nature Center, founded in 1994, is well known for providing innovative, experiential environmental education to thousands of children, their families, and educators throughout Southern Wisconsin. Our mission is to engage and educate current and future generations, empowering them to respect, protect, and enjoy the natural world.
