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): Pioneer Living

October 18, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Come celebrate the “Fall Harvest” season in full pioneer style!  We’ll play some traditional outdoor games like Blindman’s Bluff, Drop the Handkerchief and Sack Races, as well as ‘pioneer dress up’!  We’ll churn butter and warm ourselves by the fire in the Children’s Shack as we learn about the history and lives of pioneers in Wisconsin.(Butter made from heavy whipping cream will be served during this class on saltine crackers)
9-14 Year Olds will deviate slightly from the “living history component” and study immigration and history of various cultures’ arrival in Wisconsin and the traditions they brought.

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%)
