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 (Ages 9-14): Phabulous Phenology

March 8, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Aldo Leopold once said “keeping records enhances the pleasure of the search and the chance of finding order and meaning in these events.”  We’ll learn what Aldo meant
when he said this, what phenology is and why it’s important to keep long term
records of seasonal occurrences in nature. We’ll hike the trails, make phenological observations, record them in our journals as well as an online database, and compare our observations to the records kept by the Leopold family. We’ll also get the opportunity to explore ALNC’s Climate Change exhibit and discuss what these records can tell us about our changing climate.Program designed for 4th-8th equivalent or ages 9-14 years old. Please call with questions.

Online registration closes at midnight the night before programming. Walk-in registration accepted if space available. Please call ahead to check availability.
