Aldo Leopold’s Journey: A Living History Portrayal Of The Famed Conservationist Set For Saturday At Ashley Pond


The Los Alamos Public Library is pleased to announce a special outdoor Chautauqua portrayal of Aldo Leopold. The performance “Aldo Leopold’s journey: a living history” will be performed at Ashley Pond stage from 7:00 PM to 8 PM on Saturday August 12.  

Aldo Leopold, the father of wildlife ecology and our national wilderness system, was a forester, philosopher, educator, and writer. His book, The Sand County Almanac, is one of the most widely read on conservation, and his words—written 100 years ago—are even more relevant today than when he wrote them. Landscape architect Steve Morgan will portray Aldo Leopold in this hour-long Chautauqua performance.

After the performance, Morgan will engage audiences in a Q&A session, first in character as Aldo Leopold and then as an actor and Leopold expert. 

This program is free to the public and is made possible by the generous support of the New Mexico Humanities Council and Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries.
