Aldo Leopold Was for the Birds!

414 days old

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Activity: Birding
Location: Devil's Lake SP

Although widely recognized for his book, A Sand County Almanac, and for his contributions to modern conservation, Aldo Leopold was also a life-long birder. A well-worn pair of birding binoculars was often around his neck whenever he was in the field. Leopold not only enjoyed bird watching, he also wrote some of his most poignant essays about birds and their conservation. He faithfully recorded many of his bird observations, providing important historical records that allow us to understand how birds are responding to such environmental factors as climate change. Stan Temple will review Leopold's love of birds and birding and explain why his writings are so important for bird conservation efforts today. Meet at the Northern Lights Amphitheater.
