The Arboretum is recognized because of its restored habitats, landscape architecture, education and research, architectural elements, and its hosting of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp in the 1930s.
The educational talks for naturalists began as an effort to help extend the Arboretum’s guiding credo — Aldo Leopold’s land ethic — beyond the Arboretum grounds.
“Community members who have been part of the Wingra Oak Savanna project really get a sense that they are a part of this bigger community that includes not just people, but the land, the soil, the water, the plants, and the animals.”
UW-Madison will honor pioneering conservationist Aldo Leopold’s legacy and connect it to our time with a wide-ranging series of seminars, lectures, and workshops.
