More About Fall Fest

Join the Aldo Leopold Nature Center for a spooky-ish celebration featuring ‘Creatures of the Night’!

Fall Fest returns with a fun-filled night of spooky nature activities in not-so-scary style! With activity stations indoors and out, there is plenty of FREE fall fun for everyone to enjoy.

Exciting activities include:
- Discover what’s hiding in the BONE YARD
- Hike torch-lit trails through the A-MAZE-ING BASSWOOD FOREST
- Hear spooky stories in THE HAUNTED SHACK
- Meet real live CREEPY CRAWLIES (Thank you MAHS!)
- Participate in the COSTUME PARADE
- Take a hike through the prairie and play NIGHT TIME NATURE BINGO
- Roast s’mores over a CAMPFIRE (for a small fee) and more!

If you have a flashlight or two, bring them along! Otherwise, we will have a limited quantity for use on the trails.

This event is FREE and open to the PUBLIC! $5 suggested donation per person.

Getting to Fall Fest is also super easy with a free shuttle from Ahuska Park!

A photographer may be onsite to document this event. If you would not like your photo taken, please advise the photographer.

More About Aldo Leopold Nature Center

Established in 1994, the Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC) is an independent, non-profit organization. Through outdoor, hands-on, interactive programs, ALNC is leading the way to engage, educate, and empower the next generation of stewards of the land for a healthy, happy, and sustainable future.

Located in Monona, we work to engage, educate, and empower students through programming and services designed primarily for school age children, ages 2-14. We reach these students, and others, through their teachers and families, our community partners, donors, and volunteers, through School Field Trips, Summer Camps, Wonder Bugs, Homeschool Programs, After School Programs, Vacation Day Programs, Scout Programs, Public Programs, Adult & Teacher Programs and Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool.

ALNC offers many opportunities for you and your family to connect with nature. In addition to our special events and education programs, our trails are free and open daily from dawn until dusk. Discover Wisconsin woodland, prairie, and wetland habitats, providing hours of exploration every season.
