Thanks to the sponsorships from the Alliant Energy FoundationSPROUTPilgrim United Church of Christ, and the FDL County United Way, we installed the first Born Learning Trail in Fond du Lac County on 6/30/17.


In August of 2018 we joined with an AmeriCorps NCCC Team, The Village of Campbellsport, local businesses, and indivudual sponsors to install the second Born Learning Trail in the County!


Thanks to the sponsors of our North Fond du Lac location, we were able to install the third Born Learn Trail in the County in the fall of 2021!: North Fond du Lac Optimist Club, Oriole Nation Booster Club, Village of North Fond du Lac Police Department Benevolence Society, and the Village of North Fond du Lac.

What is Born Learning?


Born Learning is an innovative public engagement campaign that helps parents, caregivers and communities create quality early learning opportunities for young children. A born learning trail contains 10 interactive signs with activities for adults to engage in with young children to turn an outdoor trip into a fun learning experience.
