Aldo Leopold

"The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community 
to include soils, waters, plants, and animals, 
or collectively: the land."
Aldo Leopold (1887-1948)

Aldo Leopold is considered the father of wildlife ecology. Author of 'A Sand County Almanac' a landmark in conservation, which melds exceptional poetic prose with keen observations of the natural world. In his book Leopold puts together the concept of a 'land ethic' which is still a shining example to the Organic Agriculture Movement. The Almanac reflects an evolution of a lifetime of love, observation, and thought. It led to a philosophy that has guided many to discovering what it means to live in harmony with the land and with one another.
