Program Description

Program Details

Join guest readers as they read aloud writings of Aldo Leopold, widely acknowledged as the father of wildlife conservation in America. It's been 70 years since the publication of A Sand County Almanac, and Leopold's words have never been more poignant than they are today.

While you're at the Library, be sure to visit the "Re-Imagining Leopold" Exhibit in the Library Gallery, April 8-22, featuring works by Kevin Lair and selections of writing edited by Kathranne Knight; each were part of the original exhibit at the Iowa State University Museum’s ReACT Gallery fall 2018.


Presented in partnership with Ames Public Library, Friends of Ada Hayden Heritage Park, Creative Writing & Environment at ISU, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Outdoor Alliance of Story County, Story County Conservation, The Sustainable Agriculture Student Association (SASA) - ISU with support from Ames Public Library Friends Foundation.
