Leopold Week 2023: Nurturing Reciprocity

By Aldo Leopold Foundation

Aldo Leopold’s land ethic charges us to imagine: how can we live in community with air, water, soil, and all species? This Leopold Week, modern voices of the conservation movement help us to nurture reciprocity with nature and give back to an Earth that gives so much to us.

Join us from March 3rd - 12th for an inspirational speaker series sure to enhance your connection with nature and the conservation community.
