School & Daycare Programs

Educational Mission
ALNC’s mission is to provide innovative hands-on programs for children and teachers that “…teach the student to see the land, to understand what he sees, and enjoy what he understands” in the spirit of Aldo Leopold.

Building on ALNC’s award-winning hands-on outdoor education programs, we are pleased to now offer new and expanded programs connecting science, technology, society and the natural world. Enhanced by state-of-the-art multi-media experiences, these new programs create exciting learning experiences for all ages.
