Daylight Savings in next Sunday, days are getting longer, and meterological spring is already here.
Today marks the 75 anniversary since Aldo Leopold wrote the forward to his best-selling A Sand County Almanac in Madison, WI. It was his last published piece as he died 6 weeks later while helping fight a neighbor's brush fire.
There was a decent article in Sunday's Crossroads on Leopold Day.
This is also my first year as the Waukesha County coordinator for the Annual Midwest Crane Count I've decided to call my newest blog A Sandhill Counter Almanac in honor of Leopold, Wisconsin's own father of conservation.
I've definitely been giving more thought to Leopold since starting the blog. Finally picked up my first copy of his most popular book and started reading it. Larry, Retzer's naturalist, is an encyclopedia on Leopold and told me he'll be Leopold during a late April dinner of the Friends of Retzer Nature Center. (I also joined the Friends yesterday at his suggestion.)
As long as I was at Retzer for Leopold Day I decided to walk around the perimeter - not an easy task in snow, but very enjoyable.
