Leopold Education Project

Based on the essays in Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac, the Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an interdisciplinary environmental education curriculum. Targeted mainly to middle school and high school students, it can also be adapted for use with families, adults, and elementary-age children.

 

The curriculum is designed to help students understand human connections to the natural world through hands-on, inquiry-based, outdoor experiences, building skills in observation, plant and animal identification, land stewardship, natural history, writing and reflection, and environmental values.
