WHAT IS THE ALDO LEOPOLD FESTIVAL?
A celebration of conservation.
Les Cheneaux welcomes you to celebrate the legacy of Aldo Leopold — one of America’s most influential naturalists — during a weekend long festival, May 30 - June 2, 2019. Activities include paddling excursions, orchid and wildflower tours, birding trips, demonstrations and many other nature based activities. Come experience the woods and water that formed Leopold’s early impressions of the natural world as we honor the mark he made on conservation and the environment.
"Acts of creation are ordinarily reserved for gods and poets.
To plant a pine, one need only own a shovel."
