Although The Aldo Leopold Foundation is currently closed to visitors through March, start planning now to make your pilgrimage to the Shack, we’re working hard to get it ready for you and others. Can’t wait to see you!

Jackson Newman

Education and Communication Fellow

My name is Jackson Newman and I am from Bethesda, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. In 2020, I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Political Science. As a Communications and Education Fellow at the Aldo Leopold Foundation, I hope to continue to develop my ability to communicate with varied audiences on environmental issues and tell compelling stories that highlight the need for a new land ethic. I am excited by the opportunity to live on the grounds of the farm and cultivate a deeper connection with my natural surroundings.
