Aldo Leopold, a Sand County Almanac and Climate Change

Throughout his remarkable life, Aldo Leopold kept a daily journal in which he recorded his observations of the natural world. The journals documenting his observations at the "shack" provided the theme of Leopold's classic book, A Sand County Almanac, and they give us a detailed picture of the schedule of seasonal events, such as when various flowers bloomed and birds migrated, in the 1930s and 1940s. Today, many of the seasonal events Leopold observed are now occurring much earlier in the year, reflecting the warming of our climate. Join Dr. Stan Temple in questioning what will be the consequences for wildlife in Wisconsin.
