Leopold Education Project Workshop
March 6, 2015 9:30 am in Rogers, AR
Hobbs State Park Visitor Center, Rogers, AR
The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an interdisciplinary, critical thinking, conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the classic “A Sand County Almanac” by Aldo Leopold. LEP teaches about humanity’s ties to the natural environment in the effort to conserve and protect earth's natural resources. It is the educational outreach program for The Aldo Leopold Foundation.

In this workshop, educators will be trained in the innovative new curriculum resource, Exploring the Outdoors with Aldo Leopold, which won the Best Curriculum Award in 2010 from the National Association for Interpretation.

Leopold's writings are both sound science and excellent literature, making them an outstanding tool for meaningful environmental education. The curriculum encourages flexibility, creativity, and experimentation in using the lessons in a variety of subject matter areas. It uses hands-on critical thinking activities to not only teach students about nature and conservation but to instill what Leopold called a “land ethic”, an appreciation of and respect for the land. All activities are presented in an easy to use format similar to Projects WET, WILD and Learning Tree.
Open to all Environmental Educators including: Environmental science teachers, Master Naturalists, Stream Team leaders, Conservation districts, and state park and nature center interpreters.

Participants will receive Exploring the Outdoors CD, A Sand County Almanac, CD of additional activities, Certificate of Completion, A free 1 year membership to the Aldo Leopold Foundation, and more.

Six hours ADE professional development.
You MUST complete all six hours to be certified and to receive curricula.

Celebrating Aldo Leopold
March 7th, 12:00pm to 3:00pm

Noon-12:10 pm - Presenter will open with a shared reading of the "Forward to Sand County Almanac" (with slides).

12:15 - 1:30 pm - "A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet" film screening followed by a few comments and brief discussion of film. This is the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement – grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. Directed and written by Mark Kitchell, Academy Award-nominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, and narrated by Robert Redford, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, Isabel Allende and Meryl Streep, the film premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2012, has won acclaim at festivals around the world, and in 2013 begins theatrical release as well as educational distribution and use by environmental groups and grassroots activists.

Inspired by the book of the same name by Philip Shabecoff and informed by advisors like Edward O. Wilson, A FIERCE GREEN FIRE chronicles the largest movement of the 20th century and one of the keys to the 21st. It brings together all the major parts of environmentalism and connects them. It focuses on activism, people fighting to save their homes, their lives, the future – and succeeding against all odds.

Break 1:30-1:45 pm

1:45 - 3:00 pm - Presenter will open up with a group reading of the essay "Great Possessions" which will lead into a discussion on phenology (the tracking of natural occurrences on an annual basis to establish trends) and how people can become citizen scientists by contributing their own observations. Then he will discuss how a land ethic enhances the health and wellness of both the land and ourselves.

Aldo Leopold Weekend is a program model for bringing your community together around Aldo Leopold's idea of a land ethic. The name "Aldo Leopold Weekend" has its roots in Wisconsin, where annually the first full weekend of March has that official designation and Wisconsin communities across the state coordinate events that all happen at the same time. Leopold-themed events have spread far beyond the borders of Wisconsin since the event's inception in 2000, and are now celebrated across the nation in various ways and at various times throughout the year!

Presenter Name and Bio: Jeff Pritzl has been a Wildlife Biologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for 25 years. He has managed everything from state wildlife properties, to deer populations, to colonial waterbirds, and human/wildlife conflicts. He participated in the first Land Ethic Leaders program developed by the Aldo Leopold Foundation and has lived by and lectured on Leopold's writings throughout his career. He lives in a small woodlot in Manitowoc County where he has been restoring native plant communities and harvests most of his family protein needs during the hunting seasons.

The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative interdisciplinary environmental education curriculum based on essays in Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac.

A recently developed collection of activities entitled, Exploring the Outdoors with Aldo Leopold, encourages flexibility, and creativity, using the lessons in a variety of subject matters. The hands-on critical thinking activities teach students about nature and conservation while striving to instill what Leopold called “ the land ethic”, an appreciation of and respect for the land and how it should be used.

This workshop is appropriate for anyone who is interested in learning more about fostering a relationship between our youth and the natural world– teachers, scout leaders, naturalists, park rangers, zoo educators, youth group leaders, and private citizens.

Les Cheneaux Islands Area
We welcome you to celebrate the legacy of Aldo Leopold, one of America's most influential naturalists, as we dedicate a new park in honor of his time in Les Cheneaux. The new public park is connected to the Aldo Leopold Preserve, more than 1,200 acres of protected land on Marquette Island, part of the 36-island Les Cheneaux archipelago.

Both the park and preserve are named for Leopold and his family, who spent several months a year in Les Cheneaux at their cottage on Marquette Island. There, young Leopold spent his days in the woods and on the water, where he developed an appreciation for the environment and wildlife on the island while mapping trails and listing the flora and fauna he found.

A weekend of activities, including the park dedication, nature walks, birding trips, kayak excursions, bicycle rides, a scavenger hunt, a showing of the Leopold bio-pic Green Fire, and other Leopold-related activities are being planned for Friday through Sunday.

Book your lodging now by visiting lescheneaux.org or lescheneaux.net to find rustic cottages or comfy motel rooms. We offer a variety of affordable places to stay. Much more information is coming soon!
