Although The Aldo Leopold Foundation is currently closed to visitors through March, start planning now to make your pilgrimage to the Shack, we’re working hard to get it ready for you and others. Can’t wait to see you!

Leopold Week

Join us for a week of virtual programming! March marks the return of geese, the flow of maple sap, and the celebration of Leopold Week! Each year around the first week and weekend of March, organizations and individuals across the country come together to celebrate Aldo Leopold and a land ethic through community readings, film screenings, outdoor activities, and more. From the first planned event in Lodi Wisconsin in 2000 to the plethora of events held today, Leopold Week has been going strong for over 20 years now, bringing people from every corner of the United States and across the globe together in celebration of Aldo Leopold’s lasting legacy.

Explore Your Sense of Place

We invite you to Explore Your Sense of Place this Leopold Week through a speaker series designed to connect us with the natural landscape through food, history, writing, photography, recreation, and land care — the same tenets the Leopolds used to connect to their Shack and farm. Join thousands of individuals across the globe in a week of virtual programming that will leave you reflective of your own relationship with nature, inspired to learn more, and connected to others that care for natural and human communities alike.
