We’re reading and discussing A Sand County Almanac and Sketches Here and There by Aldo Leopold. You can reserve HERE and we will have copies at the BFL
This special edition of the highly acclaimed A Sand County Almanac commemorates the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Aldo Leopold, one of the foremost conservationists of our century. First published in 1949, it combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with anoutspoken and highly ethical regard for America’s relationship to the land. It is a unique book, a classic work of conservation, the forefunner of such important books as Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch’s The Primal Place.
Join environmental enthusiast, Arthur Ensroth, in discussing current, historical and future environmental issues through books! We’re finding ways to become more engaged and participatory in the natural world, educating ourselves on the climate challenges we face and looking at the history and philosophy of how the environment has been viewed through the ages. And, we’ll be having fun so don’t let the previous intimidate you away from a great conversation!
The BFL is collaborating with Broadmoor, Mass Audubon with this book group. We thank them for sharing their mission with us.
