Aldo Leopold Nature Center
With 97 acres of available teaching space, trails wind through prairies, wetlands, and woodlands at Aldo Leopold Nature Center, stitching the disparate environs into a hikeable network ripe for exploration. 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 how to tell which clouds are actually filled with chocolate milk. 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.
