The Aldo Leopold Foundation’s mission is to foster a land ethic through the legacy of Aldo Leopold. Our vision is to weave a land ethic into the fabric of our society; to advance the understanding, stewardship and restoration of land health; and to cultivate leadership for conservation.
As Earth Day 50 approaches, a new edition of Aldo Leopold’s masterpiece, A Sand County Almanac, arrives just in time to reach a new generation with a timeless message: that our moral responsibilities will determine how we care for each other and for our shared home, the earth. First published by Oxford University Press in 1949, in the decades since it has become a conservation and literary classic. The 2020 edition features an introduction by famed author and conservationist Barbara Kingsolver, reflecting, “Aldo Leopold, a man who died before I was born, is part of my inner circle. I always look forward to cracking open his door, A Sand County Almanac, for another chat.” Download Press Kit or see corresponding materials below.
