Our facility, including Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool, will be closed today,
Friday, March 10th, due to the winter storm.

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.

Family Fun at Rotary’s SummerPalooza!

It was a perfect day for a parade this Saturday in Madison.  Just before noon, floats of every shape, size and color began lining up for the parade around Madison’s Capitol Square to celebrate Rotary Club of Madison’s Annual SummerPalooza Celebration.

SummerPalooza was founded last year by Rotary Club of Madison, an Aldo Leopold Nature Center partner, and has already become a hit with local families looking for a fun, downtown way to start the summer.  As family activities took place in and around the Madison Children’s Museum, Rotary partners and grant recipients paraded around the square, and the Aldo Leopold Nature Center was onsite snapping photos of the action – click through the slideshow below for more scenes from the day!
