Land Ethics

Mirror Lake CamroseAll ethics so far evolved rest upon a single premise:
that the individual is a member
of a community of interdependent parts.

The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries
of the community to include soils, waters, plants and animals,
or collectively the land.”

“…I do not imply that this philosophy of land
was always clear to me.

It is rather the end result of a life journey.” 

~  Aldo Leopold
