Land and Ethics: Aldo Leopold's Legacy in the 21st Century
A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold defined land ethic, let's explore what that means to our forests today.
Please join Buddy Huffaker, Executive Director of the Leopold Foundation, and Dr. Gene Likens, President Emeritus of the Cary Institute, for a conversation exploring the roots of Aldo Leopold’s prescient call for an ecological conscience.
They will discuss Leopold’s internationally renowned book A Sand County Almanac, and retrace some of the key experiences in Leopold’s life that shaped his thinking and philosophy. More importantly they will discuss the relevance of his vision, articulated nearly seven decades ago, and what a present-day land ethic might look like, in Norfolk and beyond.
Reception to follow.
Reservations required. Please call the Norfolk Library at 860-542-5075 or email Jean Bronson.
