Finding Aldo Leopold’s Roots

I am always intrigued by the question of whether a conservationist’s love of nature came from the environment they grew up in, the influence of parents and/or other mentors, or both. To find out, I prefer to visit the places they were raised and where they practiced their craft. Tracing Aldo Leopold’s roots was something I had yearned to do for many years and I finally got to it. As always, I was grateful for the opportunity.
