Aldo Leopold Festival

May 31 - June 4

The Aldo Leopold Festival highlights Birds, Bugs, and Blooms. Join us for a spectacular weekend of learning about warblers, insects, and spring wildflowers in this unique ecosystem, one that the Nature Conservancy labeled, “One of the last great places on earth.”

Activities include paddling excursions, orchid and wildflower tours, birding trips, presentations, and many other nature-based activities. Experience the woods and water that formed Leopold’s early impressions of the natural world as we honor the mark he made on conservation and the environment.

It was also the summer home of Aldo Leopold’s family. Come and receive young Aldo Leopold’s Birding Journal of 1904 in which he lists all the birds he witnessed that summer.
