Aldo Leopold Nature Center - Monona
Last updated on September 15, 2015


ALNC's mission is to provide hands-on programs for children, their teachers and families that “...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. Through these programs, ALNC fosters admiration and respect for nature and the understanding of the interconnectedness of all living things.

ALNC is a private not-for-profit organization created in 1994 to promote environmental education and provide opportunities for children to connect with nature. Our primary services, at both our Monona and Black Earth campuses, are naturalist-led programs on the land; school field trips, summer camp, seasonal family programs, scout programs, special events and teacher training workshops.

The Nature Center was founded in 1994 in the City of Monona, Wisconsin. In 1997, the new Nature Center building was created to demonstrate that we can live lightly on the earth. It showcases renewable energy systems, building techniques, and natural and recycled materials which help us live compatibly with the rest of the environment.
