Audubon Conservation Ranching Webinar: An Emerging Land Ethic

Join ranchers and Audubon staff as we discuss our Conservation Ranching Initiative. Thursday, September 03, 2020, 6:00pm CST

In the culminating essay of Aldo Leopold's most celebrated work, A Sand County Almanac, he introduces the prevailing idea of “land ethic,” or mankind’s moral responsibility to the natural world. But did you know that he also wrote an essay in Audubon magazine in 1942 that essentially proposed the concept of market-based conservation and the potential power of the consumer?

In this free, one-hour webinar we will look at how the Audubon Conservation Ranching Initiative seeks to turn Leopold's bold ideas into reality, with beneficial outcomes for the land, birds, and the ranchers that bring conservation ethics to the management of their lands. Learn how you can further this ideology through food purchases that bear the Audubon certification seal.
Joining our panel discussion will be Dan O’Brien, Author, Rancher & Owner of Wild Idea BuffaloAdrienne Larrew, Rancher & Owner of Corner Post MeatsJosh Lefers, Rancher & Audubon Dakota staff, Matt Allshouse, Rancher & Audubon California staff, and Dusty Downey, Rancher & Audubon Rockies staff.
