Visit us, and discover the landscape that inspired Aldo Leopold’s most famous work, A Sand County Almanac, as well as your own connections to nature. Start at our visitor’s facility, the Leopold Center, located near where Leopold died fighting a wildfire in 1948. Inside, explore the center’s “green building” features and exhibits on Leopold’s life and legacy. Or head outside to hike or snowshoe through lovely prairies and woods. Just down the road is the Leopold Shack, a National Historic Landmark. Our lands are also part of the Leopold-Pine Island Important Bird Area, a preserve for rare grassland birds.
