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.

Natural Academic Success

January 27, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for an evening devoted to school-readiness and how nature-based preschools fit into the equation.

Catherine Koons Hubbard, Preschool Director at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee, will present science-based evidence that supports play, independence and nature-learning as indicators for academic success. Two seasoned public school Kindergarten teachers, who also teach ALNC summer camps, will be present to field any questions and assuage any fears or reservations you may have about the school-readiness level of your child.

Learn more about Catherine Koon Hubbard’s work and How Learning to Put on Rain Boots Leads to Academic Success.

Childcare will be provided for ALNP families. This event is free and open to the public.

A photographer may be onsite to document this event. If you would not like your photo taken, please advise. Thank you!
