Birthday Anniversary of Aldo Leopold

Birthday Anniversary of Aldo Leopold

Acclaimed conservationist Aldo Leopold was born on January 11, 1887 in Burlington, Iowa. With the 1949 publication of his seminal work, A Sand County Almanac, he became a leading voice of ecological conservation. But why did Aldo Leopold visit Severson Dells in 1936 and 1937 and what did he find there?? Find out when we celebrate the life and work of this influential Midwesterner at (and after) our volunteer restoration workday. Pack a lunch and bring a favorite Leopold quotation, read a passage from one of his writings, or be prepared to discuss Leopold’s Land Ethic. Plan to stay to learn about the connection between Aldo Leopold and Severson Dells!
