Watershed Committee of the Ozarks believes in the "Land Ethic", a concept put forth by Aldo Leopold in A Sand County Almanac. In this collection of essays, he describes all of us as citizens of the land. Using Leopold's "Observe, Participate, and Reflect" model, our volunteers are encouraged to build strong relationships with the environment and our community. We hope that by offering a variety of volunteer opportunities and helping you to learn as much as you can along the way, that we can help you build those relationships.
"A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. A thing is wrong when it tends otherwise."
- Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
