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!

Mitchell Groenhof

Land Stewardship Coordinator

For the past seven years, I have been involved in ecological restoration and land stewardship work for a small non-profit, federal agencies, and, most recently, a private restoration firm.

Prior to joining the Leopold team, I was working for Minnesota Native Landscapes, Inc. in Otsego, Minnesota. I was a crew leader responsible for maintaining the ecological integrity of clients’ projects, including several high-quality restoration sites as well as a number of green roofs.

I am very excited to be working with foundation staff on Aldo Leopold’s historic property and surrounding lands. While I enjoy stewardship work in all the seasons, fire season is one of my favorites. I’m excited to share my experiences and gain new ones in our important work together.
