Get it while it’s hot — and cheap

Earlier this week, we told you about an event at the Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area this Saturday (March 3) celebrating the life and legacy of legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. We’re now told that the Friends of Hobbs volunteer organization will be selling copies of Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac for $3.50 instead of list price of $12.95. The book is a collection of essays advocating Leopold's idea of a “land ethic,” or a responsible relationship existing between people and the land they inhabit. Edited and published by his son, Luna, a year after Leopold's death, A Sand County Almanac is considered a landmark in the American conservation movement. Of course, we’re wondering when we can get our local conservation hero, the late Dr. Neil Compton, the kind of recognition Leopold has received nationwide.
