Aldo Leopold

We've worked hard over the years at NCTC to get the word out about Aldo Leopold's legacy. The Aldo Leopold Foundation does this work every day. Leopold is a hero to all conservationists, and he holds a special place in the history of the University of Wisconsin at Madison. They're planning a big Leopold celebration today in Madison.
(Leopold's) musings on that work and the relationships between people and nature are the basis of his 1949 book, “A Sand County Almanac.” With science, history, humor and prose, Leopold articulates the bond between people and the natural world; with the hope that readers would treat the land with love and respect.
