Aldo Leopold Nature Center
Ranked #1 of 4 things to do in Monona
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Easily worth two hours - you'll find top notch, informative displays about climate change, and a fine restored prairie. The volunteers are friendly and will be happy to show you around. A bit out of the way, but worth the trip.

Don't visit with the expectation of having the same type of experience you would have at the History Museum in Chicago. I didn't expect that, but I expected something in addition to what we saw there. A number of the interactive devices didn't work. The featured "fireworks" over the earth for the 4th of July was unimaginative at best. The staff however, was very nice and seemed able to compensate for the lack of materials to work with. The trails in the city are nice, but seem in competition with the UW Arboretum, and loose in their attempt. Going once, to say you were there, will be enough.

Had a fantastic guide who was patient with the students on our trip. Wonderful interactive displays that helped the kids learn about Wisconsin history and industry.

The nature center is part of a 53 acre expanse of prairies, ponds, and woodlands. The numerous gentle trails are a constant delight of changing environments, wildlife, and nature up-close. It's all free, and the center itself is comfortable and worthwhile.

This nature center is conveniently located right off the main highway, but you wouldn't know it once you get to the center surrounded by woods and prairie. Great programming for kids of all ages, and a very interesting climate change interactive exhibit for all ages. Check out Science on the Sphere!
