ABOUT ALDO LEOPOLD
Leopold’s Preserve was named for the noted conservationist, forester, philosopher, educator, writer and outdoor enthusiast Aldo Leopold. He promoted the idea of “land ethic,” “which calls for an ethical, caring relationship between people and nature,” according to the Aldo Leopold Foundation website (aldoleopold. org). Leopold is perhaps best known for his 1949 conservation classic, “A Sand County Almanac.”
A sign on the west side of Leopold’s Preserve tells about the conservationist for which it was named.
