Eau Claire Celebrates the 70th Anniversary of Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac

Celebrate Wisconsin’s Aldo Leopold Weekend by joining a community reading and discussions of Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac published 70 years ago in 1949, shortly after Leopold passed away.

The program opens with readings and discussions. Listen or read along, partake in discussions about the writings, or step up to the mic and read your favorite passage or share your favorite quote. Terry Mesch will give a reading of The Good Oak, and UW-Eau Claire student Max Veldran will discuss his internship at the Leopold Foundation this past summer. Learn what it was like to be a student in Leopold’s popular Wildlife Ecology and Game Management classes.

The program also includes a noon screening of Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time a hour-long Emmy winning documentary produced by the Aldo Leopold Foundation. An Introduction will precede the movie and a discussion will follow.

At 1pm there will be a Leopold Bench Building Activity - a hands-on demonstration of ‘How to Build a Leopold Bench’ with bench building materials provided by Mills Fleet Farm. Stop in any time throughout the program and share the Leopold spirit.

This event is free and open to the public & sponsored by the Lower Chippewa River Alliance.
