Getting to the Leopold Center

Our location at E13701 Levee Road is just west of the intersection of Schepp and Levee Roads in the rural township of Fairfield, WI. Note that Levee Road is not always marked as such; look for the brown Rustic Road markers instead (Rustic Road #49).

Although signs are posted along certain roads to help you find us, many intersections are not marked. Please call us if you need help clarifying directions: 608.355.0279.
