Based on the essays in Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac, the Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an interdisciplinary environmental education curriculum. Targeted mainly to middle school and high school students, it can also be adapted for use with families, adults, and elementary age children. The workshop will be facilitated by Gail Leura from the University of Michigan.

 

Its goal is to create an ecologically literate citizenry by heightening student awareness of the natural world; fine-tuning the skills necessary to read the landscape; and instilling a love, admiration, and respect for the land so that each individual may develop a personal land ethic.

 

Registration is only $15 and includes a copy of the LEP Curriculum. Register at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/leopold-education-project-workshop-tickets-78081326349
