Workshop Details:

Leopold Bench Building Workshop
with Jim Fickle, NCBG Master Volunteer

Saturday, January 16, 2016; 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The registration period has closed for this event.

Celebrate Aldo Leopold’s birthday with us. Considered by many to be the father of wildlife management and of the U.S. wilderness system, Aldo Leopold was a conservationist, forester, philosopher, educator, writer, and outdoor enthusiast. In 1935, Aldo Leopold and his family initiated their own ecological restoration experiment on a worn-out farm along the Wisconsin River outside of Baraboo, WI. There, he used scrap wood or whatever materials he had on hand to build a series of benches.

During this workshop, participants build a Leopold Bench to take home. This bench is simple, yet classic for any garden and landscape. Rough sawn cedar wood will be cut to size for assembly by the participant. If you can, please bring a power drill/screwdriver. Otherwise, tools will be provided.



Registration open through 1/14/2016 11:59 PM EST
