A Walk with Aldo Leopold
Date: 8/24 - 8/24   click here for website

Considered to be the father of wildlife management, Aldo Leopold inspired the world through his essays that were later published in A Sand County Almanac. In 1935 Leopold purchased a degraded farm along the Wisconsin River and began trying to build it back to its natural glory. The farm was the inspiration for many of his essays and journal entries we enjoy today. The way ecologists and foresters alike view modern land management is largely thanks to Leopold’s contribution to land ethic. As an educator, he had one main objective: “To teach the student to see the land, to understand what he sees, and enjoy what he understands.” This walk will be along the Bridge Trail to explore how the land has been used at Grandfather Mountain and what insight Aldo Leopold might have suggested for this place
Cost per person: free with admission
Program starts at 11:00am
Meet at the base of the Bridge Trail across the road from the Black Rock Parking
