Aldo Leopold Nature Center

A continuation of the wonderful programs experienced through the Master Naturalist Program at the MacKenzie Center.

We toured the Aldo Leopold Nature Center, located in Monona, WI near Madison, a modern facility, where you can explore the environmental challenges we face today.

As a climate science center the interactive exhibits are amazing. My favorite Science on a Sphere shown here with atmosphere patterns.

Aldo Leopold, author of "A Sand County Almanac", was the nations first professor of game management at UW, and known for his call to action for "Land Ethics".

His legacy lives on the through the Aldo Leopold Foundation in Baraboo, WI.
