The Leopold Education Project

The Aldo Leopold Foundation
The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the essays in A Sand County Almanac.
The Leopold Education Project has an assortment of resources for teachers and non-formal educators to help bring Leopold into their lessons and activities. These resources are available in our bookstore or by taking an LEP Educator Workshop. Contact the State Coordinator in your state to find a workshop near you.
Another major premise underlying the LEP is that educators should provide students direct experiences with the natural and cultural worlds outside the school. One way to accomplish this is to make greater use of the outdoors as a learning laboratory.
The Aldo Leopold Foundation
"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.
When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
Aldo Leopold

Our school has a walking trail in a somewhat natural area. I'd love to see more natives added and see it used to provide experiences for the students.

I've included two of Leopold's essays in my research paper course for first-year college students. We'll see how the discussion goes.
