Our facility will be closed Wednesday through Friday, June 7th, 8th, and 9th,
for staff training and professional development.

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.

Back-Acre Bird Hike

February 14, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join ALNC naturalist and resident birder, Alex Jeffers, on a guided birdwatching hike in celebration of the 2016 Great Backyard Bird Count. Hike our prairie, wetland, and woodlands to help us track birds on our grounds as part of this nation-wide citizen science initiative. Bring your kids, your lovebird, or yourself to discover and identify local birds, listen for their calls, and learn how you can conduct citizen science in your own backyard.

Afterwards, head inside to test your skills with the Leopold Soundscape and Bird Identification interactive in our brand new Immersion Theater!

FREE with paid public admission to ALNC and exhibit areas
