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.

Home School (5-8): Snowshoe the Winter Landscape

December 13, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Some animals in nature have “built-in” snowshoes, but humans have had to invent their own!  Learn the Native American history of snowshoeing and try out snowshoes for yourself in this winter exploration!  We’ll practice some snowshoe “calisthenics,” have a snowshoe race, and take a hike by snowshoe to observe early winter animal activity.  If no snow is present, we will hike to observe animal signs on foot.  All snowshoes will be provided.  If you have your own snowshoes, you are welcome to bring them along.

For all sessions, registration deadline is 48 hours prior to the class. This is done to allow for ALNC to plan for small group sizes and staffing needs.  Please call to inquire about space if planning to drop in, but realize that space may not be available if less than 48 hours is given. 

$10/child (ALNC Members save 10%)
