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.

Virtual BioBlitz Field Trip

October 16, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm


Teachers and Educators!! Take part in a BioBlitz Field Trip with your class and participate in Wisconsin Science Fest.

Take a virtual field trip to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center and the Department of Pathobiological Sciences to discover the connection between the land and the lab!

In BioBlitz style, we’ll start at the pond and head through the grounds to discover as many different species as we can and explore their importance in the web of life. Join ALNC Environmental Educator, Nicky Mondroski, and Professor Lyric Batholomey from UW Madison for this exciting and interactive field trip.

From insects and birds to animals and plants, we all have a role to play in the Circle of Life…even the most pesky species among us.

This experience is geared towards classrooms and is part of the Wisconsin Science Fest. Teachers must pre-register to attend.
