History Sandwiched In: 'Aldo Leopold's Shack'
Noted conservationist Aldo Leopold spent most weekends and vacations living and working at the Sand County farm he called "the Shack." Leopold's book, "A Sand County Almanac," was based on the scientific observations recorded in his journals. Drawing from these journals, historic family photos and interviews, and writing from the perspective of Leopold's daughter Nina, Nancy Nye Hunt captures the spirit of this famous family's experiences on the land in her book, "Aldo Leopold's Shack: Nina's Story." A book signing will follow the presentation.
History Sandwiched In is an informal, brown-bag lunch-and-lecture series held the first and third Tuesdays of the month. You are invited to bring a lunch and enjoy a program of historical perspective.
