First Saturday Lecture

4/1/2017 | Arrow Rock State Historic Site | Arrow Rock, MO

First Saturday Lecture: "Aldo Leopold - Whither Missouri and Revisiting His Famously Penned Land Ethic.”

This lecture will be presented by Dana Ripper and Ethan Duke of the Missouri River Bird Observatory (MRBO). Considered by many to be the father of wildlife ecology, Aldo Leopold was a conservationist, forester, philosopher, educator, writer, and outdoor enthusiast. His “land ethic,” called for an ethical, caring relationship between people and nature.  Ripper and Duke will explore Leopold’s historic ties to Missouri and introduce the key concepts of the “Land Ethic.” Ripper and Duke and the MRBO work closely with the Missouri Department of Conservation and Missouri State Parks to monitor bird populations throughout the state and conduct public education and outreach programs.

Lecture time: 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
