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.
