Leopold Education Project
This nationally acclaimed professional development workshop introduces students and teachers to the work, life and legacy of Aldo Leopold, Father of Conservation Agriculture and the Land Ethic. This one-day workshop is based upon Leopold’s most well-known book, A Sand County Almanac, that all participants receive, along with a curriculum guide and supplementary materials. Through literature, observation and engagement with the working landscape, and the history of conservation policy and practice, the LEP provides teachers with ideas for conservation, sustainability and stewardship education. In addition, MAEF provides consultation in how to adapt the curriculum to particular needs and audiences, K-12. Perfect for designing Environmental Literacy experiences on campus or off!

2013-2014 Greenfire Screenings:
Starting in August 2013, MAEF will be co-hosting a series of Greenfire screenings at local historical societies, agricultural museums, and conservation/environmental centers. Greenfire is the award-winning biographical film of Aldo Leopold, who many consider the father of American conservation. We are partnering with local organizations to help raise awareness of the history of soil conservation, Dust Bowl and New Deal era agricultural history, and the connections Maryland has to Aldo Leopold and the modern land preservation movement.
 
If you would like to partner with MAEF to show the film followed by a short panel or guest speaker discussion, please contact Peggy at peppig@maefonline.com
