WILD READ Essay Discussion Begins Tomorrow - Curt Meine as Moderator
Curt Meine, Director for Conservation Biology and History at the Center for Humans and Nature and Senior Fellow, Aldo Leopold Foundation, will moderate our discussions beginning tomorrow. He will post questions and stories which will stimulate conversation about our two featured essays - Aldo Leopold's "Thinking Like a Mountain" from the book, A Sand County Almanac (Oxford U. Press, 1949) and his own essay "The Once and Future Land Ethic" from his book Correction Lines: Essays on Land, Leopold, and Conservation (Island Press, 2004). Discussion will ebb and flow around thoughts and ideas as we read these essays and intersect with visions of the National Wildlife Refuges and American conservation going forward. Leave comments and be a part of America's WILD READ! Will Stolzenburg, author of Where the Wild Things Were: Life, Death, and Ecological Wreckage in a Land of Vanishing Predators and the forthcoming Rat Island: will moderate next week.
