Annual Conference

In this `practitioners' Conference, we will feature farmers, ranchers, scientists and conservationists who are "living Leopold" today - people who are implementing his vision on the back forty. The event will incorporate six themes: (1) Land Health; (2) Conservation; (3) Sustainable Agriculture; (4) Wildlife and Restoration; (5) Beauty; and (6) the Land Ethic. Each theme will be motivated by a Leopold quote and each speaker will discuss the land ethic in their lives and how a new agrarianism works.
