Dueling Essays: Aldo Leopold's "Thinking Like a Mountain" and Curt Meine's "The Once and Future Land Ethic" - Blog Discussion Begins May 1, 2011
Guest moderator William Stolzenburg will post ideas and observations about Aldo Leopold's "Thinking Like a Mountain" essay from the book, A Sand County Almanac (Oxford U. Press, 1949). We will also read Curt Meine's "The Once and Future Land Ethic" from his book Correction Lines: Essays of Land, Leopold, and Conservation (Island Press, 2004) and discuss how these two essays intersect as we scope out the future of wildlife refuges and American conservation (all essays and image above reproduced by permission of the publishers). Comments are welcome prior to our discussion or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
