Rocky Mountain Land Series presents Estella Leopold - Saved in Time: The Fight to Establish Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Colorado

Historic LoDo: The Aldo Leopold Foundation joins us in presenting paleobotanist Estella Leopold as she discusses and signs her new book Saved in Time: The Fight to Establish Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Colorado (University of New Mexico Press). In the summer of 1969, a federal district court in Denver, Colorado, heard arguments in one of the nation’s first explicitly environmental cases, in which the Defenders of Florissant, Inc. opposed real estate interests intent on developing lands containing an extraordinary set of ancient fossils. This book tells a story of environmental activism that remains little known more than forty years after the coalition’s victory.
