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.

Learn to Listen for Owls

December 11, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Learn to Listen for Owls, a Special December Bird & Nature Adventure
Saturday, December 11th at 4:30pm

Join Aldo Leopold Nature Center Environmental Educator Melissa Kesling and Josh Seibel with Madison Parks for a free, family-friendly guided hike to Learn to Listen for Owls. Discover the owls that call Madison home – huge Great Horned Owls, medium-sized Barred Owls and tiny Screech Owls – and can be found throughout the city in parks and yards. What do they eat? What is an owl pellet? Do they always sleep during the day? When do they make their nests? Join us for an easy walk on the paths at Aldo Leopold Nature Center and Edna Taylor Conservation Park with stops along the way to listen for the distinctive hoots and calls of owls. If you’re fortunate, you may just get to see an owl sitting quietly on a big tree limb above your head. Dress warm. The event is free and registration is encouraged.
