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.

Great EGGspectations

March 31, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Legend has it that every spring a rabbit would visit children’s homes during the night
and leave a woven nest with an egg in it as a sign that spring had arrived.  Join us to hear this wonderful story and adorn your own spring basket just as the animals do by using materials from the land.  Learn to dye eggs naturally with leaves, grasses, and other gifts of nature to mimic the variety of colorful eggs made by our wild critters!  Eggs and other materials will be provided.

Registration ends at midnight the night prior to the session. Register using the link below or call 608-221-0404×0.

Cost: $10/child (ALNC members receive 10% off)
