Aldo Leopold Nature Center and surrounding city parks, the Edna Taylor Conservancy and Woodland Park, make up more than 100 acres of continuous natural area between Monona and Madison - offering teaching space, hiking trails and opportunities for exploration in prairie, wetland and woodland environments. Through the educational programs and interactive exhibits, the naturalists and volunteers that run the center equip members with the knowledge necessary to fully commune with the land and its inhabitants. Exploration guides chart preset courses through the park, and the center's exhibits break down natural phenomena, investigating everything from what causes global warming to investigating the life cycle of a drop of water as seen through its own eyes. As a reward for supporting the nature center through their annual contributions, members also gain access to special programs such as the Fall Fest and public events including Maple Syrup Fest.
