Enhance your exploration of nature with our Family Trailside Backpack Program. This self-guided, year round program is designed for families to learn together, at their leisure, as they explore the Aldo Leopold Nature Center trails. To help you on your adventure, we provide a backpack with an easy-to-understand Exploration Guide and a seasonal activity kit, which children of all ages will enjoy. Backpack themes change seasonally and include Spring is in the Air, Crawling Critters, Amazing Adaptations and Snug in the Snow.
Non-members: $5/ family

Drop-in hours are Monday through Friday, typically 9am to 4pm and 10am-2pm on weekends. To ensure availability, please call in advance to reserve the backpacks.
