Ames Reads Leopold

Sunday, March 19, 2023 - 1:30pm to 4:00pm

AMES READS LEOPOLD: Sunday, March 19. 1:30-4:00 pm in the Farwell Auditorium at the Ames Public Library. More information at Ames Reads Leopold | Ames Public Library.

Join friends and neighbors at this year’s "Ames Reads Leopold" event and hear the thought-provoking words of Iowa’s own Aldo Leopold, widely acknowledged as the father of wildlife conservation and a strong advocate for a "Land Ethic” in America. Although Leopold's A Sand County Almanac was first published in 1949, his words continue to be as poignant today as then.

Neil Hamilton, Former Director of the Drake Agricultural Law Center and Professor Emeritus of Law, will be a featured speaker. Additional speakers/readers will include local high school and Iowa State University students as well as community members.
