“Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time” – A Film
April 22, 6:30pm-8:00pm
Green Fire is a biographical documentary about the legendary conservationist thinker, Aldo Leopold. He is the father of the national wilderness system, wildlife management and ecological restoration. His foundation’s mission is to foster a land ethic awakening and ecological consciousness in people to care for our Common Home. Learn what it means to “think like a mountain.” The film deals with land health, wilderness philosophy, resource management, and a ‘community’ definition of soil, water, plants, animals and humans.
Green Fire explores Leopold’s personal journey of observation and understanding. It reveals how his ideas resonate with people across the entire American landscape, from inner cities to the most remote wild lands. The film challenges viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the land.
Jim Voegeli, who has a special fondness for the work of Aldo Leopold, will lead the discussion following the film.
