The Iowa DNR Wildlife Bureau and the Iowa Chapter of The Wildlife Society held their state-wide annual conference in Burlington in Sept. The Alliance hosted an evening reception for them (about 70 biologists) at both Leopold Houses, and Steve presented "The Roots of the Land Ethic" at their meeting.
Conference Speaker, Drew Lanham, Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Management at Clemson Univ., photographs the signature Aldo carved into the basement beam.
On their way down the Mississippi River, Augsberg College Students stopped by to do a little study at the Leopold compound. Leopold Board Members, Steve and Jerry, discuss Leopold's childhood with Christopher. Professor Joe Underhill hopes to bring the next group of students for a longer stay.
