"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect." - Aldo Leopold
in Haymarket, Virginia
When walking with naturalist Carrie Blair, we don't have to cover a large area to notice many interesting things. Every few steps, she points out the distinctive bark on native trees, provides ways to identify plants by their dried seed pods and shares information on many other aspects of ecology. We greatly enjoyed our green walk on St. Patrick's Day with Carrie at Leopold's Preserve.
