JSU Field Schools Featured in National Aldo Leopold Foundation Newsletter

03/18/2014

Environmental educators across the country now know about JSU's Little River Canyon Center and the JSU Field Schools, thanks to a front-page article on the Aldo Leopold Foundation Outlook e-Newsletter.

The coverage stemmed from the Leopold Education Project workshop, which took place at the Center on March 1-2. JSU Field Schools sponsored the workshop, which gave 25 teachers from three Southern states the opportunity to learn about the LEP curriculum and view Green Firethe film that explores Leopold's idea of a land ethic for a population facing 21st century ecological challenges.

Considered by many as the father of wildlife management and of the United States’ wilderness system, Aldo Leopold was a conservationist, forester, philosopher, educator, writer, and outdoor enthusiast. The five children of Aldo and Estella Leopold established the Aldo Leopold Foundation as a not-for-profit conservation organization in 1982. The Foundation's mission is to weave a land ethic into the fabric of our society; to advance the understanding, stewardship and restoration of land health; and to cultivate leadership for conservation.
