Program Details

Join guest readers as we explore the conservation and land ethic writings of Aldo Leopold. His most famous work, A Sand County Almanac, published in 1949, is still popular with naturalists and writers alike. Readers will share essays from this book, his other books and from other like-minded writers.

Provided in partnership with Ames Public Library, Creative Writing & Environment at ISU, Friends of Ada Hayden Heritage Park, Iowa State University Office of Sustainability, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Outdoor Alliance of Story County, Story County Conservation, and The Sustainable Agriculture Student Association (SASA) - Iowa State University. Supported by the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation.
