Celebrate the legacy of Aldo Leopold, one of America’s most influential naturalists!
Leopold and his family spent several months a year in Les Cheneaux at their cottage on Marquette Island. There, young Leopold spent his days in the woods and on the water, where he developed an appreciation for the environment and wildlife on the island while mapping trails and listing the flora and fauna he found.
A weekend of activities will include a boat tour taking passengers just offshore of the Aldo Leopold Preserve– more than 1,600 acres of protected land on Marquette Island, part of the 36-island Les Cheneaux archipelago. Other planned events include a ferry cruise in the channels, nature hikes, birding trips, kayak excursions, bicycle rides, a scavenger hunt, a showing of the Leopold bio-pic Green Fire, and other Leopold-related activities are being planned for Friday through Sunday.
