Podcast Ep. 24: The Land Ethic is Rooted in Iowa with Steve Brower from Leopold Landscape Alliance
It's Leopold Week where we celebrate the life and work of Aldo Leopold, the "Father of Wildlife Ecology" and no doubt a big influence on many of us in the conservation field. But how many of us stop to appreciate the fact that Leopold is from here in Iowa, born and raised in Burlington (my hometown, incidentally). So much of what he wrote and what has been written about his focuses on his professional life and his travels and accomplishments outside of Iowa. But the "Land Ethic" that he's so well known for is rooted in his upbringing. And those roots are right here in Iowa.
