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.

Little Naturalists Field Trip

August 9, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


little_naturalists_squareJoin us for a slow-paced, toddler-led walk specially designed for families with young kids! We’re thrilled to partner with Hike it Baby Madison, the local chapter of a national organization focused on getting children comfortable in nature at an early age, and the Madison Audubon Society. With professional naturalists from Madison Audubon Society and Aldo Leopold Nature Center in tow, children will learn the plants, rocks, birds, and bugs they find while they hike through the woods and prairie. Parent(s) or caregivers are required to attend with children — you’ll have fun too, we promise!

Easy terrain (level, mowed paths) make this hike appropriate for all walking stages and strollers. No dogs, please. Membership in any of the three partnering organizations is not required. Grab your kids and come for a fun morning walk!

Co-sponsored by Madison Audubon Society, Hike it Baby Madison, and Aldo Leopold Nature Center.
