Building on Aldo Leopold’s ideas and philosophies, the mission of the HLR Land Education Program is to promote a land ethic that fosters a whole-ecosystem approach to conservation. Helping people understand and value historic and current ranching practices and their effects on a whole ecosystem are central to the HLI mission. The High Lonesome Ranch land ethic illuminates a new era of conservation—one that includes people and their needs, specifically those of rural agricultural and ranching communities. We believe that addressing these human dimensions is essential to conserving both biological and cultural diversity.
