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.

We have recently updated our mask policy to help keep our visitors, students, their families and our staff safe.

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.

“Choosing the location is one of the most important and potentially one of the most difficult decisions you’ll make with your partner when planning your wedding. If the unbelievable beauty of the prairie, the masterfully renovated building with the incredible chandelier, the secluded feeling the trees of this nature preserve, or how professional and helpful Duncan and his team are, aren’t enough of a reason to make the decision to book this venue for your wedding, consider that the money you’ll be spending goes directly back to the children of the community to help with the recently opened preschool and field trip programs. Not only will you have the PERFECT location for the most special day of your lives, you’ll also be doing an act of goodness, so you’ll feel good about your decision as well.

I can’t imagine having a wedding in any other location.”
