Additional archival material discovered while researching Living a Land Ethic
- The above video footage, originally made by Reed Coleman’s father Thomas, is from Aldo Leopold’s June 1927 trip to Lily River, Wisconsin with Coleman, brother Carl Leopold, and sons Starker and Luna. For more information see my blog entry on the Waters of Wisconsin website. Video courtesy of Sand County Foundation.
- The original diary entry that included Leopold’s Lily River notes can be found here (courtesy of the Aldo Leopold Foundation; thank you as well to Leopold biographer Curt Meine for confirming the trip destination and locating the diary entry).
- Click here to read a transcribed version of the diary entry. Watch the video footage, read the essay at the end of his entry, and then read “June” from Sand County Almanac to see how such a trip may have inspired Leopold to write early versions of essays found in the Almanac.
