Have popular images of mountains and waterfalls, like those found in nature calendars, diluted our appreciation for our local nature spaces? Is there a way to nurture and deepen our appreciation for everyday ecologies through deep observation and communion with the land? Well-versed in Leopold and the convergence of artistic and scientific practices, Dr. Edgar Cardenas (author of Between Two Pines) shares and discusses his own photographic work exploring the subtleties of human-land relationships and Leopold Fellow Jackson Newman shares how Cardenas’s work has inspired his own photography on the Leopold Memorial Reserve.
