Our facility will be closed today, Saturday, March 25th, due to the winter storm.

As always, you’re invited to hike our trails, which are open daily from dawn until dusk.
Please do exercise caution in these snowy conditions as we can’t guarantee the state of our parking lots and hiking trails.

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.

Local to Global: Conversations of Our Healing Actions

April 22 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

It’s time for our ACTION!

This Earth Day, join Mundo Esperanza for a full day of conscious conversation on how members of our community are helping to heal the planet. Joined by local leaders from the Ho-Chunk Nation, Sustain Dane, UW Madison, and more, we will look at local initiatives, indigenous principals, the connection of mind, body, and spirit and their connection to nature, and some roles Madison is playing on a global basis.

This is a free event! Box lunches available for purchase on Eventbrite.

Come for the whole program or attend only a portion.
