  • Unique place for a unique man. This was, at one time, the most sustainably constructed facility in the US = fitting tribute. Small gift shop was good. Museum/info area is really good. Wish they had more guided tours and the self-guided tour needs some work.
  • Exquisitely-designed and executed complex and trails inspired by one of the most influential people in conservation. Beautiful art, gift shop, delightful staff, programs regarding citizen science and crane-watching. I look forward to my next visit to Aldo's old stomping grounds.
  • Extremely interesting place to visit, the tour was well worth the 15$ and felt very honest and just a time of sharing stories and other notable things about Aldo Leopold and things related to this property. For anyone who has read the sand county almanac or is interested in conservation this place is a must visit.
  • Dreamed of visiting for a lifetime. The center is nice, beautiful and staffed with good people. Small museum and interestingly, “off-site” which makes good sense. The Shack is left in as-was condition as much as possible and just a short jaunt down the road. You are free to wander around the property and dream. The hum of tires on the nearby interstate adds an interesting touch. The area by the river reminded me strongly of the bosque in New Mexico and brought me full circle. As we drove away and I was still walking the shack in my mind, I almost hit a couple cranes standing in the road. I almost laughed at the absurdity then I almost cried.
  • This center is a hidden gem! Not only is the set up remarkable with green infrastructure and trail systems, it is full of interesting information about Aldo Leopold and family's life. It contains quotes, artifacts, and video clips. This is a must stop over as well as a visit to the Shack (1mi away) which they provide maps for self-guided tours. Center has restrooms, water fountain, gift shop and conference center facilities.
