  • Ah...where even to begin? Read Sand County Almanac before you come. Or don't. Excellent staff and tour guides work here to help educate us to Leopold's land stewardship theories and techniques. Beautiful, especially, for me, in the autumn-only time I have visited, though. Just a place. A Shack, on a river. But the Ideas, the Writing, the Experiences had here are much more tactile, to my mind, than, for instance, trying to distill the Mississippi out of Clemen's birthplace in Hannibal, with every hotel named the same. Aldo Leopold was a pioneer of conservationism. Come here if you care.
  • Beautiful natural area with history behind it. The building is beautiful and does justice to the Leopold family using natural materials harvested locally.
  • A unique stop focused on telling Aldo Leopolds story and a prime example of sustainability at the visitor center.
  • This is a great place to visit if you have an appreciation for nature, conservation, and native prairie restoration. You can walk the trails of the property of Aldo Leopold and visit his old shack where his family would stay. On occasion, Aldo's distant relatives are standing by the shack to give insight on the history of the place. The restored prairie area is beautiful and a joy to see if you have an interest in botany. Trails wind through the property and parallel the Wisconsin river. Overall very peaceful and lovely place to visit - a great combination of nature and history.
  • Incredible tour of the shack and life of aldo leopold.
