Your child has the day off of school, now what? Bring them to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC) for a day full of adventure and learning! On Monday, January 16, ALNC will offer two Vacation Day sessions appropriate for ages 5-12 and a special lunch bunch option to keep your youngster engaged all day long.
Walk like a lynx on snowshoes to track rabbits and other prey! We’ll learn how Wisconsin’s mammals adapt to the harsh winter environment as we learn about the true hibernators like the groundhog, deep sleepers such as the chipmunk and those active all winter long, like the fox! Then we’ll strap on snowshoes to search the trails for signs of wildlife wintering in the woods. If no snow is present, we will hike to observe animal signs on foot. All snowshoes will be provided, however if you have snowshoes, you are welcome to bring your own.
ALNC Members: $18/participant; Non-Members: $21/participant. Add Lunch Bunch – just $6 for ALNC Members and $7 for Non-Members.
