Rappahannock News - - OBITUARIES • NATURE -

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.”
