Annual Conference - Variable
The theme this year is "Land Ethic". We felt that the time is right to have a discussion of the reason for Environmental Education. We will still learn a lot about techniques, resources, and status of EE, but we will also study some of Aldo Leopold's philosophy of a land ethic while learning what a land ethic is and developing our own land ethic.
Believe it or not, we all have a land ethic of some sort. For some, the important parts are the soils, plants and animals. For others, it's how much food can be grown on it. For others, it's how much monetary value it has. We'll be spending some time understanding our own land ethic and, perhaps most importantly, learning about others.
Homework assignment: Read Aldo Leopold's essay "Thinking Like a Mountain" in "A Sand County Almanac" to learn about the wolf's green eyes!
