Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool


September 9th was the first day of Aldo Leopold Nature Center Preschool

Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool is a program of ALNC and shares our mission to engage and educate, current and future generations, empowering them to respect, protect and enjoy the natural world.

Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool will provide both indoor and outdoor environments rich in hands-on materials, literature and open-ended play time which encourage wonder, discovery, experimentation, invention, creation and the opportunity to see the results of one’s actions.
