        Aldo Leopold 1887 1948 had lasting impact on natural resource management and policy in the early to mid twentieth century and his influence has continued to expand since his death It was through his observation, experience, and reflection at his Wisconsin river farm that he honed the concepts of land health and a land ethic that have had ever growing influence in the years since his death He published than five hundred articles and three books during the course of his geographically widespread career, but it was time at his shack and farm in Wisconsin that inspired most of the disarmingly simple essays in A Sand County Almanac that so many have found so thought provoking The Aldo Leopold Foundation was founded in 1982 by Aldo Leopold s children Starker, Luna, Nina, Carl, and Estella The Leopolds all became respected scientists and conservationists in their own right They established the foundation primarily because they realized that the shack and farm would be a focal point for their father s legacy for generations to come A 501 c 3 public charity, ALF owns and manages the Leopold Center, including the Leopold Shack and 264 surrounding acres in addition to several other parcels, and also manages much of the adjoining 1,800 acre Leopold Memorial Reserve established by neighboring landowners as an early land trust in 1967 It acts as the executor of Leopold s literary estate, encourages scholarship on Leopold, and serves as a clearinghouse for information regarding Leopold, his work, and his ideas It provides interpretive resources and tours for some 5,000 visitors annually, cooperates with partners on education and other off site programming, and maintains a robust website and numerous print resources The Aldo Leopold Foundation manages this page Leopold s life story, the development of his career as a conservationist, scientist, writer and philosopher, and his open mindedness, his vision, and the evolution of his thinking throughout his life inspire others to start or further their own intellectual journey of discovery A closer engagement with Leopold s story, his writing, and the place that inspired him and his family helps people better to understand the contours of American environmental history and the role of nature in American culture, and to reflect on their own place in the complex weave of the way our society relates to land Leopold s vision of a society that cares about people, land, and the connections between them provides a starting point for thinking about modern day cultures, economies, ecosystems, and communities.

    1. This was all pretty good reading. I didn't think it measured up to Sand County Almanac, except in places, but that's a high bar. For me, given that much of it was about hunting and game birds, it wasn't too relevant; I support wildlife and am a farmer, but am not a hunter and don't think much of shooting the animals you love. That personal opinion aside, though, it was well written and interesting enough to hold even my attention. But the real reason, I think, to read this book is section III. T [...]


    2. While I really enjoyed the content, the beginning was really slow. The information is dense, and so despite being a short book, it took a long time for me to get through. After all, this collection of essays and articles were meant to be read as they were published in newsletters (or not) as opposed to all at once in a book. This one has not lost its relevance despite being written 80 years ago.


    3. A beautiful example of compelling writing. Leopold offers simple suggestions of things land owners can do, and why those suggestions are relevant. The study of European land management is fascinating and informative. These essays are written as much from the heart as from the intellect, and the combination provides the reader with a gentle reflection and yearning to be part of what clearly motivated the author.Frankly, I found this to be more interesting than 'A Sand County Almanac'. A great rea [...]
