Saturday Science
Engaging with Nature Through Aldo Leopold's Legacy
Take a virtual field trip (registration required) to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center to learn from naturalists how to use science to explore the world around you. We’ll investigate what plant and animal life is like in the Wisconsin winter. Plus, learn about Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac and more. After the virtual experience, explore more online in the January Saturday Science Portal and explore outside to investigate life in winter all around you.
