Join us in the atrium of the library on Thursday, March 21, 4:30pm – 6:30pm when members of the Le Moyne community read aloud selections from Aldo Leopold’s work, The Sand County Almanac.
Aldo Leopold’s 1949 book, still in print, is one of the classics of nature writing. His essays were outliers at the time regarding land use and wildlife and the relationship human’s have with their environment. Environmentalists, conservationists, and wildlife biologists consider it a seminal work in the founding of the 20th century environmental movement, alongside Rachel Carson’s 1962 book, Silent Spring.
