Our facility will be closed Monday, January 16th in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day.
We plan to reopen on Tuesday, Jan 17th at 9am.

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.

Family Public Program: Geocaching Adventure!

October 1, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for a modern day treasure hunt! Geocaches are hidden containers that you track down using GPS units. Learn how to use a GPS unit and spend the afternoon on a geocaching adventure at ALNC’s Black Earth campus to find caches. We’ll also have a crash course in map and compass orienteering, a good skill to have in case technology fails. GPS units will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you have one. Want to stay longer? Stick around for our Fall Family Campout in the evening!
Please note: This event is at our Black Earth campus. See details below for exact location.

Cost: $6/person for Members; $10/person for Non-Members.
Attendees age 3 and younger are free.

Pre-registration required. Event may be canceled if a minimum number of attendees is not obtained. ALNC will contact you and refund the registration fee if the event is canceled.register here
