Join GPSA for Ames Reads Leopold

Join GPSA members for a celebration of Aldo Leopold's work at Ada Hayden Heritage Park this Sunday, March 21 from 1:30 to 3:30 PM. Readers will stop at memorial stones around the park to feature selected works from the conservation icon. More details from the organizers:

For the past 12 years Ames has celebrated Aldo Leopold’s contributions to American conservation through reading his essays in a community event, “Ames Reads Leopold.” Aldo Leopold is widely acknowledged as the father of wildlife conservation in America. Although Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac was first published in 1949, his words continue to be as poignant today as then. In 2021 with the coronavirus pandemic still impacting our country and local community, Ames Reads Leopold is going on a walk to lessen Covid-19 potential.
