2012-2013 Annual Report: Aldo Leopold Revisited

Annual Report Cover

“When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” – Aldo Leopold

Sometimes you need to go back to your roots, and this annual report for the Leopold Center is sprinkled with thoughts from Aldo Leopold’s many writings. His words remain inspiring and thought-provoking and are well matched to many of the Center’s current activities.

The challenge is not to be overwhelmed by the many things that need to be done to help Iowa farmers and instead to keep working on the things we can do to make a difference. This is the firm and lasting commitment that the Leopold Center makes to its many stakeholders, partners, collaborators, investigators and supporters: That we stand ready to work with them and beside them to achieve a more sustainable, ecologically and economically vibrant agriculture that will benefit Iowans today and in the future.
