Welcome back! Our facility is now open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

Because we are a childcare facility and still following public health protocols, we will retain a few restrictions, including requiring masking indoors and limited access to some public offerings and areas of our facility. We may also have to adjust our hours or access on short notice. We appreciate your patience as we work through changes in staffing and schedules, and 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.

Greater Together

Creating deep-rooted connections between children and nature occurs because of an entire community, in addition to parents and teachers. At Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC), program revenue covers about half our expenses; the other half is covered by donations and grants.

ALNC membership is a donation that improves the quality of our programming; from an amazing staff to healthy grounds. In addition to almost $50,000 in annual tuition assistance, our community impact reaches beyond our grounds with over 20,000 hours of free nature programming, and free or reduced program costs for community partners building equity in underserved communities.

Join a community driven to keeping children engaged with nature as a vital part of every day. Together, we can empower all to protect, respect, and enjoy the natural world.

Your neighborship gives you all the benefits of a family membership plus it gifts these benefits to an underserved family in your community. For each neighborship, ALNC will donate a membership to a partner organization working with underserved families. Additional funds from neighborships will go towards supporting ALNC’s IDEAs initiatives and fund equitable programs that are designed to do good, not make a profit. Help us create nature education that’s accessible for all!
