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.

Stories from the Land: A #GivingTuesday Event with Jerry Apps

November 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Celebrate #GivingTuesday with a talk by top-selling rural-life author Jerry Apps!



We would rest on the hay that
smelled of sweet clover
and alfalfa and listen to the
drumming of the raindrops
on the barn roof.

We’d listen to Pa’s stories of rainy
days he remembered.
We enjoyed a day of rest and
celebrated the rain, for our sandy
farm never had enough.

– Jerry Apps

Celebrate #GivingTuesday with us as we listen to Jerry Apps share stories and excerpts from his books and rural-life experiences! The Wisconsin Historical Society Press will be here, selling copies of Jerry’s book and donating a portion of the proceeds to help us create equitable access for all children at ALNC!

A book signing will follow.

No registration required.
