Our facility will be closed today, Saturday, March 25th, due to the winter storm.

As always, you’re invited to hike our trails, which are open daily from dawn until dusk.
Please do exercise caution in these snowy conditions as we can’t guarantee the state of our parking lots and hiking trails.

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.

Global Climate Crisis: Risks & Opportunities for Public Health

August 20, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Considering the many pathways through which climate change can adversely affect our health, global climate disruption poses enormous risks to human and societal health.  At the same time, interventions to combat climate change by choosing more sustainable energy sources can offer potentially large health dividends and lives saved.  These opportunities, along with climate change health risks, will be discussed in this presentation by Dr. Jonathan Patz, Professor & Director of the Global Health Institute at UW-Madison.

The lecture is free and open to the public, and will be followed at 7:00PM by a guided tour of the Aldo Leopold Nature Center’s Climate Science Education Center, including a special presentation on Science On a Sphere (at a discounted tour rate of $5/participant, or free for Aldo Leopold Nature Center members).

Pre-registration for the lecture and tour are not required.
