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.

Internship Opportunities

Seasonal Internships


Diversity in Conservation Internship (Summer 2023)

ALNC is excited to participate in Natural Resources Foundation’s Diversity in Conservation Internship Program, which provides meaningful experiences for undergraduates interested in careers in natural resource conservation. Undergraduates from Lawrence University, UW-Madison, and UW-Milwaukee are eligible to apply. The program encourages applicants from underrepresented groups or disadvantaged backgrounds, and previous conservation or environmental science background or education is not required. The goals of this 10-week cohort-based program are to introduce students to the field of conservation and its career pathways and to help strengthen the knowledge and skills of program participants to meet the need for diverse professionals in Wisconsin’s conservation field. Student interns will each receive a $6000 stipend. To apply or learn more, please click here.
