One of the main uses for the properties in our stated goals is to, "House an Environmental Studies and Research Residency Program open to individuals, colleges, agencies and organizations."
Since buying the Leopold Childhood Home, LLA has hosted many tours, programs, and overnight guests to learn about the Leopold family and their nature based values. Many college classes and land agency personnel have expressed a desire to bring more students and staff for seminars or just to spend time making a connection to Aldo in the many intimate places around the Leopold Compound and his old tramping sites. Several Leopold fans have commented how they would love to be here to work on their research, writing, art or music. A few individuals, classes and scholars have already taken advantage of this opportunity.
So now we are in the process of formally developing this residency program. We currently have the ability to sleep 8 for a modest donation. As the program grows, we anticipate having more facilities and the ability to handle larger classes. Let us know if you are interested in studying at the Leopold Compound for a day or longer.
