“A Sand County Almanac” by Aldo Leopold

“There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot. These essays are the delights and dilemmas of one who cannot.” – Aldo Leopold

Gather around the fireplace to discuss Leopold’s observations in this seminal work. At the end of our discussion, we’ll review books for future consideration, round-robin style. Your nature-focused book suggestions are welcome.

Hosted by Mark Maffey, ACRES board member and Natasha Manor, office and volunteer manager.

ACRES members, you’re encouraged to bring friends and family to members-only events.
