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.

It’s Aldo Leopold’s birthday weekend! Come celebrate at our Black Earth Campus, located in the Driftless Region!  Grab your sled (or snowshoes) and join us for an evening of fun in the snow! Discover the winter flora and fauna as you sled, snowshoe or hike along the snow-covered trails.  Finally, we’ll warm up around a roaring campfire with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy a birthday snack. ALNC will have adult and child snowshoes available for use at this event.  Participants are invited to bring dinner to cook over the campfire or eat in the cabin.
