Who is Aldo Leopold?

aldo-leopold
The Villages of Piedmont at Leopold’s Preserve owes a mark of gratitude to Aldo Leopold. A fervent conservationist, writer, philosopher, and educator, he is considered the father of modern wildlife management. Built around many of his philosophies and remaining deeply connected with nature, the Villages of Piedmont at Leopold’s Preserve can be seen as the manifestation of man and nature in harmony.

 

Born in 1887, Leopold was fascinated with nature at an early age and attended the Yale Forest School. After graduating in 1909, he joined the newly formed Forest Service and was instrumental in managing the Gila National Forest.

 

It was in 1933, after many years of investigating and developing a philosophy of conservation, Leopold wrote the first textbook about wildlife management and was appointed chairperson of game management at the University of Wisconsin.

 

After numerous experiments and writings, Leopold’s life tragically ended from a heart attack in 1948 after trying to fight a fire that spread from a neighbor’s property to his own farm. Leopold is fondly remembered for his dedication to wildlife management and natural philosophy.
