Event Details

Every fall, we celebrate our accomplishments and look to the year ahead. Instead of gathering as a community in person this year, we will celebrate virtually. The staff will give a short update on Denver Audubon. Then, conservation biologist Stan Temple will present about Aldo Leopold’s love of birds and birding, and explain why his writings are so important for bird conservation efforts today.

Although widely recognized for his book, A Sand County Almanac, and for his contributions to modern conservation, Aldo Leopold was also a life-long birder. A well-worn pair of birding binoculars was often around his neck whenever he was in the field. Leopold not only enjoyed bird watching, he also wrote some of his most poignant essays about birds and their conservation. He faithfully recorded many of his bird observations, providing important historical records that allow us to understand how birds are responding to such environmental factors as climate change. Stan Temple will review Leopold’s love of birds and birding and explain why his writings are so important for bird conservation efforts today. A side note: We are fortunate to have Estella Leopold, Aldo’s only surviving child, as a long time supporter of Denver Audubon and our Lois Webster Fund.

About Stanley A. Temple: Stan is the Beers-Bascom Professor Emeritus in Conservation in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For 32 years he held the academic position once occupied by Aldo Leopold, and during that time he won every teaching award for which he was eligible. He is currently a Senior Fellow with the Aldo Leopold Foundation. He has received special recognitions for his contributions to ecology and conservation from the Society for Conservation Biology, The Wildlife Society, the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology, the American Ornithologists’ Union, the Explorer’s Club, the Wildlife Conservation Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters. He has been President of the Society for Conservation Biology and Chairman of the Board of The Nature Conservancy in Wisconsin.
