Welcome to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center‘s Digital Docent: Climate Change Impacts self-guided walking tour! Use your smart phone or other mobile technology as you explore our trails and learn about local species and discover how changes in climate affect ALNC’s seasonal environment and the local ecosystem.

The Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC) is nestled in a 100-acre green corridor between Madison and Monona, tucked at the foot of a handsome glacial drumlin. With 20 acres, year-round programming, interactive exhibits, multimedia theaters, accessible hiking trails, and the Children’s Shack (a replica of Leopold’s famous retreat), ALNC is perfect for visiting local ecosystems, learning about our planet, and enjoying hands-on experience of Leopold’s way of life with the whole family. Visitors and families can check out a Trailside Backpack, pick up a scavenger hunt, or follow interpretive trails to explore native prairie, shaded woodlands, and a dipping pond. ALNC’s fieldtrips, school-vacation programs, summer camps, and family programs and special events throughout the year are not to be missed!
