Come celebrate Aldo Leopold Weekend with the Waukesha County Land Conservancy (WCLC) and the Waukesha County Environmental Action League (WEAL) for a night of captivating conversations, reading out loud samples from A Sand County Almanac – all while roasting marshmallows over a crackling bonfire and sipping on your favorite drinks.

Delve into the literary classic, A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold. Originally published in 1949, the book chronicles Leopold’s observations of the flora and fauna in a rural area of southern Wisconsin over a forty-year period. The author’s vivid descriptions of nature are accompanied by philosophical reflections on wildlife conservation. With over two million copies sold, A Sand County Almanac is widely regarded as a revolutionary piece of work that transformed our perception of wildlife conservation and land management.

This event is free and family-friendly. So come keep warm and cozy with a bonfire, and don’t forget to bring your own chairs and drinks. S’mores supplies provided.
