We take our name from Aldo Leopold’s essay Round River, along with the idea that ecological study enriches one’s personal land ethic and strengthens a community’s collective wisdom. Round River is dedicated to conservation strategies that preserve and restore wild places; to that end, we strive to develop and support traditions that sustain wildness. These efforts are anchored in the principles of conservation biology, supported by field research and community planning. Our student programs take students outside the classroom and into the wild, where they can experience community-based conservation first hand.
