"From Wild Lands to Working Lands to Urban Lands: Restoration and Stewardship Across the Landscape," Curt Meine, Aldo Leopold Foundation
In "The Land Ethic," Aldo Leopold argued that our ethical framework must expand to include the land "as a community to which we belong." He further stated that "nothing so important as an ethic is ever written... It evolves in the minds of a thinking community." In this presentation, conservation biologist and environmental historian Dr. Curt Meine will discuss the continuing relevance and evolution of the land ethic in today's society, and how it helps to understand the sustaining connections we must build into our landscapes and lives.
