About the ALNC

The Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC) was established in 1994 as an independent, non-profit organization with the mission to provide hands-on programs which “…teach the student to see the land, to understand what he sees, and enjoy what he understands” in the spirit of famed ecologist Aldo Leopold.

ALNC operates two innovative nature center campuses year-round in Monona and Black Earth and uses both facilities for hands-on environmental education programming including public programs,pre-school programssummer campsschool field tripsafter school programsscout and home-school programsspecial eventsteacher training workshops and interactive exhibits. Through these programs, ALNC fosters admiration and respect for nature, and encourages sustainability and stewardship of the land.

This blog is maintained as part of our ongoing Climate Education Center digital curriculum. Combined with our “high-touch” outdoor programs, our “high-tech” offerings use multimedia exhibits and interactive programming, including multimedia, visual, hands-on, and immersive experiences. Our exciting, interactive exhibits are designed for all ages and focus on topics of climate, energy, sustainability, and more.
