About this Summinar
Aldo Leopold was one of the great essayists of the twentieth century. His Sand County Almanac is, with Walden and Silent Spring, a founding document of environmentalism. Moving, illuminating, and highly instructive, Sand County Almanac has, since its publication in 1949, inspired and informed generations of citizens, activists, and scholars.
A Midwesterner, Leopold was a pioneering wildlife biologist, wilderness defender, soil conservationist, land restorationist, and ecologist. He was also a devoted family man, and influential professor at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
