MONONA (WKOW) -- As the Aldo Leopold Nature Center gets ready to open its multi-million dollar expansion, the man who co-founded the organization talks about the project's importance.
Board Chairman and CEO Terry Kelly was on Wake Up Wisconsin Tuesday. He says the Aldo Leopold Nature Center will serve more than 1 million children over the next 15 years and teach them in what he calls a "high tech/high touch" way.
Kelly says educators will teach things like sustainability and renewable energy. He says ALNC is one of the only facilities in Wisconsin teaching environmental education, especially since schools are facing budget issues.
The grand opening is Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
