"All ethics so far evolved rest upon a single premise: that the individual is a member of a community of interdependent parts. The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants and animals, or collectively the land." Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
Forester. Ecologist. Educator. Conservationist. Writer. Philosopher.
Next year will mark the 70th anniversary of the completion of Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac--the seminal work by one of our nation's most influential conservation leaders, widely regarded as the father of the United States wilderness system and of wildlife ecology---and of Leopold's death that same year. In A Sand County Almanac Leopold articulated the idea of "the land ethic": that we are called to live responsibly in a caring relationship with the natural world.
As a member of Virginia's United Land Trusts (VaULT) and in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Forestry and the Aldo Leopold Foundation, CRLC is participating in a statewide series of programs hosted by local land trusts to inspire a return to Leopold's work for guidance as we foster a conservation ethic within our communities.
Join CRLC and community members for a screening of the documentary
Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time. In small groups we'll then read aloud a selection from A Sand County Almanac and, through facilitator-led conversation, reflect on our own values, the enduring wisdom of Leopold's land ethic, and how both can be a wellspring for our commitment to the future of our region.
