Aldo Leopold series involves community in environmental discussions
As environmental concerns grow more urgent, the work of Aldo Leopold remains a vital touchstone. The University of Wisconsin-Madison professor was a pioneering conservationist and the author of A Sand County Almanac, the seminal 1949 book about people’s relationship to nature. UW-Madison will honor Leopold’s legacy and connect it to our time with a wide-ranging series of seminars, lectures, and workshops.
