Virtual Badger Talk from McFarland: "Monarch Butterflies, Private Land and Aldo Leopold's Land Ethic"

Speaker: Stanley Temple

Event Details

Tuesday, August 18, 2020
7-8 p.m.
The Monarch Butterfly has declined by >90% over the last decade, and its future depends on management practices on privately owned lands in the Midwest. Aldo Leopold’s “land ethic” highlights the responsibilities of private landowners to care for the other species that live on their property, not because they are forced to do so by regulations or coerced to do so with subsidies, but because it is simply the right thing to do.
