I read the March chapter of Sand County Almanac, The Geese Return, and discuss the virtual speakers during Aldo Leopold Week, March 1 through 10.

This year, 2024,  is the 75th anniversary of the publication of A Sand County Almanac, by Aldo Leopold, and the 100th anniversary of the Gila Wilderness  which was designated the world’s first wilderness area on June 3, 1924. Aldo Leopold was a forest service officer in New Mexico and recognized the need to preserve this beautiful area of more than 558,000 acres in SW New Mexico and worked for its preservation.
