Virtual Events Slated For Leopold Week, 2022, March 4-13
Baraboo, Wisconsin Feb 25, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – The Aldo Leopold Foundation announces an upcoming week of earth-inspired programming, in celebration of the return of geese, the flow of maple sap, and the sun’s waxing warmth! All are invited to register for and virtually attend the foundation’s annual grassroots celebration of Leopold Week, 2022.
Last year’s Leopold Week program–Building an Ethic of Care for All–was attended online by 3,387 registered participants from all 50 states and over 11 countries! Space is limited, and you are advised to register soon for the Aldo Leopold Foundation’s 2022 speaker’s series on our Leopold Week Home Page
This year’s Leopold Week theme–Explore Your Sense of Place–will be presented via a speaker series designed to connect all people with their natural landscape through food, history, writing, photography, recreation, and land care–the same tenets the Leopold family used to connect to their Shack and farm.
