Presented by Heidi Mehl

In 1949 Aldo Leopold sparked the modern conservation movement with his treatise on "land ethics," declaring that ethical individual cooperation should also consider soil, water, plants, and animals. But what role does culture play in determining the land ethics of place? This presentation explores different land ethics and how they impact our water resources through land management choices. Learn about agricultural practices in Kansas and how they compare with the indigenous land ethics of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, the Altai Republic of Siberian Russia, and Kikuyu people of central Kenya.
