Aldo Leopold

From Canoes: A Natural History in North America by Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims

  • In A Sand County Almanac (1949), one of the seminal works of the environmental movement, Leopold advocated for the idea of a “land ethic,” which held that people were responsible for the land they inhabited. The book is considered an inspirational text in popularizing the science of ecology.
