We read that “Leopold’s concepts of “land ethic” “remained ideals, preservationist recognized  them as pointing the way to a new relationship between man and land as well as to a new  significance for wilderness” (Nash 2014). I believe that this quote fits in well with your  argument. An argument that I believe could have been stronger was when you talked about the  development of geology and ecology. If you were to go more in depth on this topic and explain it more, I feel like it could have been stronger. Lastly, I can see someone argue that since you

talked about human connection to the land that it means that those are the core values of  conservation. I believe that an argument you made that was strong was the one about how Leopold stated, “the aim and purpose of this little paper is to promote the protection and enjoyment of wild things.” (Nash, 2014). This argument was well supported by this week’s lesson materials. An argument that I believe could have been stronger was about Leopold stating some individuals may love pine, but other may hate pine. I just didn’t see the relevance in this argument. Lastly, you talked about it a little in your post, I believe that someone could argue that since humans have the power to destroy or conserve land that their values and beliefs are at the core of conservation.
