    Description:  The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an interdisciplinary conservation ethics curriculum based on essays found in Aldo Leopold’s conservation classic, A Sand County Almanac.  Leopold is considered the father of wildlife management and of the wilderness system. The combination of ecological science and literary prose in the Almanac makes it useful in science and English classrooms.
    Educators find a variety of hands-on/minds-on ways to deepen participants' awareness of the outdoors. Topics include weather, adaptations, and conservation.

    Participants will receive: a copy of A Sand County Almanac, the LEP activity guide, and a set of activity cards that supplement the lessons in the activity guide or stand alone.
