More About Walking Home Ground: Retracing the Steps of Muir, Leopold and Derleth to Learn

This class is a reading and writing appreciation course.
Walking Home Ground: In the Footsteps of Muir, Leopold, and Derleth, is an account of regional writer Robert Root’s journey walking the same Wisconsin trails, countryside and natural areas as the legendary writers and conservationists listed in the title. For each class, we will to respond to the reading and come up with our own ideas as to what home ground means to us and how we understand and experience our drift-less natural areas. From there we will go ahead and try to write our own “In the footsteps” accounts. Part of our class will be inside and part will be outside, so participants need to dress accordingly.

More About this Event Poster: Aldo Leopold Nature Center

The Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC) was established in 1994 as an independent, non-profit organization with the mission to provide hands-on programs which “…teach the student to see the land, to understand what he sees, and enjoy what he understands” in the spirit of Aldo Leopold. Through hands-on interactive programs and special exhibits at campuses in Monona and Black Earth, ALNC is leading the way to engage, educate and empower the next generation of stewards of the land for a healthy, happy and sustainable future.

ALNC offers many opportunities for you and your family to connect with nature both indoors and out. In addition to our special events and education programs, our indoor children’s exhibits provide a special place for your child to learn about Monarch Butterflies and Prairies, Native Fish and Wetlands and Woodlands. Visit our Climate Science Education Center and learn about climate, weather and earth science using high-tech, interactive features found nowhere else in the region. Head outside and explore our wetland, woodland and prairie trails, open sun-up to sun-down, 7 days a week!  Sign your child up for our Wonder Bugs preschool programs, vacation day nature programs and home school programs for ages 5-12, or summer camps for ages 2-16. See you on the trails!
