Aldo Leopold Legacy Center
The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the essays in A Sand County Almanac. Originally created by a Wisconsin high school science teacher, LEP uses Leopold's writings as a springboard for engaging students in natural science curriculum. Are you a formal or informal educator who would like to incorporate Aldo Leopold and the land ethic in your instruction? Join us for this one-day workshop at the Leopold Legacy Center in Baraboo, WI – less than a mile from the historic Shack property! Participants will receive a set of LEP materials and instruction on how to apply LEP and Leopold’s own teaching techniques with their students. Specific workshop details TBD. Cost: $50

For more information and to register, visit http://www.aldoleopold.org/Visit/calendar.shtml#LEP

Note: This LEP training will precede a two-day Land Ethic Leaders workshop, so that anyone interested can attend both programs. Participants who register for both the LEP and LEL workshops also have the option of enrolling in one continuing education credit from the Hamline University School of Education.

French Woods Festival of Performing Arts
The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the essays in A Sand County Almanac. Originally created by a Wisconsin high school science teacher, LEP uses Leopold's writings as a springboard for engaging students in natural science curriculum. The nonprofit conservation group Pheasants Forever adopted the curriculum in the early '90s, and LEP became the environmental education arm of the organization. Using their ties with chapter groups across the country, Pheasants Forever organized a robust network of state coordinators and facilitators that could bring the curriculum to teachers nationwide. Over the last twenty years, more than 15,000 educators have attended a LEP workshop! More recently, the original curriculum was expanded to include new activities, incorporate new technologies such as GPS, and facilitate teaching in non-formal educational settings, like nature centers and zoos.
