About the Event
Sponsored by the Lawrence Environmental Education Foundation and hosted by our Vice President, David Bosted, this walk will explore the very paths that Aldo Leopold roamed as he began his lifelong passion for the environment.
Aldo Leopold is one of the founders of the wilderness and conservation movement. Observing nature along the paths of the Loveless Preserve, helped him develop his “land ethic” philosophy calling for an ethical and caring relationship of the natural world. He attended the Lawrenceville School and spent his free time “tramping” through the woods around the school, recording his observations in his journals. This was a lifelong habit that began at age 11.
Some of these tramps were to nearby forests, including one he referred to as the “Big Woods.” This is an area in Lawrence that is now part of Rider University and Loveless Preserve/Central Park.
We hope you can join us for this inspiring event!
