Program Description

Program Details


Join your friends and neighbors at this year’s "Ames Reads Leopold" event and hear the thought-provoking words of Iowa’s own Aldo Leopold, widely acknowledged as the father of wildlife conservation and a strong advocate for a "Land Ethic” in America. 

Leopold's A Sand County Almanac was first published in 1949 and is celebrating its 75th Anniversary. These essays continue to be as poignant today as then.



Join the Zoom Meeting:


Presented in partnership with Ames Public Library, Creative Writing & Environment at ISU, Friends of Ada Hayden Heritage Park, ISU Bioethics Program, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Office of Sustainability/Live Green! Initiative, Outdoor Alliance of Story County, Prairie Rivers of Iowa, Story County Conservation, and The Sustainable Agriculture Student Association (SASA) ISU.
