Join our first-ever Community Read. Community or Big Reads are designed to inspire people to pick up a good book, to encourage reading for pleasure and enlightenment, and to start a conversation on a specific topic. This year our focus is on preserving land, legacy, and community. With this in mind we've chosen A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold. First published in 1949, A Sand County Almanac has sold over two million copies in ten languages, and is a wonderful book about conservation and the need for a human conscience towards the use of land. Itís beautifully written with great descriptions of nature and the way plants and animals interact with each other for survival. After registering, you will be mailed a copy of a A Sand County Almanac. Begin reading, and then participate in one of our small group discussions. Led by our staff, these book chats will be an informal exchange of ideas and impressions about Leopold and his work in conservation. Accompanied by garden-wide activities, this Community Read will include weekly Blog posts and the opportunity to view the film Green Fire (based on Leopoldís extraordinary career). As an exciting finale to our Community Read, we will host author/ lecturer Curt Meine on April 12 to discuss his book, Aldo Leopold: His Life and Work and his work with the Aldo Leopold Foundation.
Please enter through the Business Entrance at 409 Conservatory Road.
A copy of A Sand County Almanac will be mailed to you with your confirmation. You will receive a copy of Aldo Leopold: His Life and Work at the book discussion.
