ALNC’S FACILITY REMAINS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC

Even though our building is closed*, our trails are free and open to the public daily from dawn until dusk.
We invite you to come out and enjoy the Wonders of Nature…it’s good for the mind, body and soul.

ALNC will be opening for limited summer camp programs starting July 6th. Access to the building will be restricted to ALNC Staff and Summer Campers.

We thank you for your patience as we determine the right course of action.
Please stay tuned for more information and do not hesitate to contact us with questions at alnc@aldoleopoldnaturecenter.org.

*Please note our facility’s date of reopen to the public is based on public health recommendations and other factors.

Land Stewards

Land Stewards & Restorationists -- We need YOU! Land Stewards & Restorationists — We need YOU!

Interested in helping restore and maintain ALNC’s prairie, marsh, and woodlands? Join us one Saturday a month, March through November, to help control invasives, seed with native plants, get dirty and have some fun! Volunteer work days will focus mainly on land management projects and invasive species removal. Work days may be cancelled due to inclement weather or planned activities may be modified.

Here are just a few Land Stewards projects:

  • Cut honeysuckle and other unwanted brush
  • Mulch trails
  • Pull garlic mustard and other “weeds”
  • Transplant wildflowers
  • Collect and label seeds
  • Garden work as needed
  • Pick up trash
  •  
    Join us in Monona for one of our upcoming volunteer work days! There is no need for individuals or families to sign-up or RSVP. Simply show up and ALNC staff will greet you upon arrival. Adults and youth welcome. **Groups: please let us know in advance if you plan to attend, so we can be sure to have enough work and supplies for everyone.
