Some (somewhat random) Earth Day reflections
[listener video by Colleen Eggett]

“There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot. These essays are the delights and dilemmas of one who cannot.”

So begins A Sand County Almanac from the writer that many describe as the father of the modern environmental movement. Aldo Leopold’s land ethic was simply, “When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”

How has reading Leopold influenced you, personally or professionally?
