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.

The Cozy Campaign – A Sleeping Bag Fundraiser for ALNP

February 1, 2021 - February 15, 2021

Warm your heart by warming up nap-time!

Aldo Leopold Nature Preschoolers are in need of sleeping bags to keep them warm during their outdoor, socially-distanced nap-time. From now until February 15th, warm your heart AND the littles by donating your new or gently-used sleeping bags to ALNC.

Please email to confirm your items and set up a date and time to drop-off your donation.

Due to licensing, fire code and storage restrictions, any donated supplies, materials, furniture or equipment must be approved before they can be accepted. ALNC reserves the right to refuse any item and donated items become property of ALNC. To inquire about donating items, please email
