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.

Vacation Day: Blowing in the Wind (MMSD Early Release)

November 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$10 – $26

Fall breezes are here bringing cooler weather and tossing colorful leaves all around ALNC! We will spend the day observing our fall weather with meteorological tools, crafting art from fallen leaves, creating our very own pinwheels, collecting native seeds to scatter across our prairie, and much more!

Cost: $26/child for 3 hours (1pm-4pm)

Please pack a sack lunch if signed up for Lunch Bunch. PM snacks provided.

Additional info:
— Vacation Day programming is designed for ages 5-12. Attendees will be split into groups according to age so material may be adjusted accordingly.
— Please send your child with appropriate clothing to spend the majority of the day outdoors and bug spray and/or sunscreen if appropriate.

Lunch and Extended Day are available from 12-1pm and 4-5:30pm for an additional cost.
