Joseph Jenkins Lecture Series: Aldo Leopold, Phenology and Climate Change
Wednesday, July 13, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join Stan Temple, Senior Fellow at the Aldo Leopold Foundation to learn about Aldo Leopold, best known as the author of A Sand County Almanac, who was a keen observer of the natural world. Leopold’s meticulous phenological observations have provided us with an unparalleled record of when plants bloomed, birds migrated and other natural events. Comparing his observations of hundreds of natural events to recent records helps us understand how climate change is affecting the ecological community. One lesson of Leopold’s journals is clear: For those who love nature and take time to observe it closely, keeping records enhances the enjoyment and value of our time and effort, both now and in the future. 7:00 p.m. at the Cable Community Centre.
