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) is considered the father of wildlife ecology. His seminal work A Sand County Almanac blends poetic prose with keen observations of the natural world. His concept of a 'land ethic' is still an inspiration to the Organic Agriculture movement. His philosophy has guided many to discovering what it means to live in harmony with the land and with one another.
