ALNC UPDATES

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.

Vacation Day: Wisconsin Winter Living Long Ago

December 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$10 – $55

How do you stay warm in the winter? How do you stay entertained? Today we use things such as electricity to help us stay cozy, warm, and entertained throughout winter’s cold, dark days. But, what about the people who lived here a long time ago? We’ll explore how Native Americans and pioneers stayed warm, busy, and happy in the winter months. We’ll play Native American and pioneer games, try out snowshoes, make a warm beverage over the fire, make traditional crafts, and even celebrate the Winter Solstice!

Cost: $55/child for full day (9am-4pm)

Please pack a sack lunch. AM and 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.

Extended Day is available from 8-9am and 4-5:30pm at an additional cost.
