Aldo Leopold’s fame can be largely attributed to his skill as a nature writer. In Leopold fashion, students will begin by heightening their observational skills. Students will be given the opportunity to sketch from nature and practice descriptive writing in journals. Students may bring their own journals or use the Nature Center’s simple journal page.

If you were a frog, how far could you leap? How can we estimate the height of a tree? Ever guess how old a tree is? Naturalists will lead students in a number of math-in-nature activities with the help of measuring tools, formulas, games, and observation skills.
Aligned with 4th grade curricula objectives, but adaptable for grades K-5.
This program is only offered for three weeks in March in 2019 (March 11th-29th). Students will learn basic tree identification, try tools used to “tap a tree,” taste sap, learn the science of sap flow and watch it cook down to syrup during the boiling process. We will teach the history of maple syrup making from the Native Americans to the present—and taste the final product! Adapts easily to a longer program.
As they learn about the Leopold family’s legacy and how Aldo’s land ethic influences conservation efforts even today, students will hike the woods, prairie, and pond areas surrounding the Nature Center and spend time in the Children’s Shack. Partake in some of Aldo Leopold’s favorite past-times such as bird watching, tree identification, or land restoration. We’ll record our observations in the Nina Leopold Bradley Phenology Center. This program combines well with Nature Journaling.
This program begins indoors where students are introduced to a variety of maps. After instruction on how to use components of the map, students will venture forth, with maps in hand, to find the “nature treasures” hidden on our grounds. Use of a compass is optional. Adapts well to a longer program.
Learn about the glaciers that formed the landscape of Wisconsin and what formations they made along the way. Students will hike a glacial drumlin to see the work of glaciers first-hand, observe a model glacier at work and learn how the earth’s glaciers of today are changing. Come away with an understanding of how powerful glaciers really are, and how they influenced human settlement in Wisconsin and their role in a global ecosystem.
Take a trip back in time to see how Native Americans lived long ago. A hands-on timeline will demonstrate what foods and tools they depended on and how these changed over time. Students will hike up the drumlin to view Native American mounds and question what they are, how they were made and why they are here. Adapts well to a longer program.
Find out about the science behind climate and how and why our climate is changing. Through interactive investigations, experiments and activities, students will learn the concepts behind the carbon cycle, greenhouse effect and other scientific phenomenon that contribute to climate change. We will then innovate and create solutions that reduce these effects. Adapts well to a longer program.
Aldo Leopold wrote: “When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” During this program, we will define, compare and contrast types of communities found at the Nature Center. The pond, marsh, prairie and woodland are options for seasonal habitat exploration. Pond dipping included when possible.
The Earth is constantly changing and scientists have made observations of these changes over many years. Students will learn the difference between short-term changes such as weather and seasons, and long-term changes such as climate and animal adaptations. We’ll visit “The Children’s Shack” to observe changes in people’s lifestyles and record our observations to create our own records to study.
