Environmental Book Club: A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold

Wed, June 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join a virtual discussion about A Sand County Almanac and how it relates to environmentalism today with members of the Earthplace team.

First published in 1949 and praised in the New York Times Book Review as "full of beauty and vigor and bite," A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land. As the forerunner to such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch's The Primal Place, this classic work remains as relevant today as it was more than seventy years ago.

Books are available for download.
