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.

Water Efficiency Initiatives

The water used at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center comes from aquifers deep below the soil surface, and the Nature Center features fixtures that conserve this precious resource by helping us use less water each day.

Water-efficient Toilets:
Wisconsin manufacturer Kohler Company is a leader in environmentally-friendly bathroom and kitchen fixtures and winner of EPA’s prestigious WaterSense Award. We are proud to feature Kohler’s WaterSense line in the new facility.

Water-efficient Washer:
The Maytag EPIC z high-efficiency washer provided by The Brothers Main requires less water than conventional washers.
