Our facility, including Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool, will be closed today,
Friday, March 10th, due to the winter storm.

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.

November 28, 2022 @ 9:00 am - December 2, 2022 @ 4:00 pm

Children participating in our programs have MANY opportunities for hands-on experiences, and, while discovering the wonders of nature, SOMETIMES they might need a change of clothing while they are here. So, we need plenty of back-up clothing on hand in case someone falls in the mud or in the pond, perhaps gets wet playing in the snow… and then, of course, there’s the occasional accident.

We could use your help

Donate your gently-used children’s clothing in support of children’s community-based environmental education the week of November 28th through December 2nd. The items we need most are socks, underwear, pants, and winter boots but we could also use shirts and jackets size 3T to 11-12 years old.

Please bring items to donate to the ALNC lobby during the week following Thanksgiving (Nov. 28-Dec. 2). Thank you!
