“Green Fire” provocatively examines Leopold’s thinking; renewing his idea of a land ethic for a population facing 21st century ecological challenges and asks viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the land community.
The film features commentary and insight from some of today’s most recognized and credible scholars and conservation leaders, including: three of Aldo Leopold’s children —Nina, Carl and Estella; Leopold scholars; noted environmental writers, scientists, humanities experts, public policy leaders, business leaders; and non-profit groups inspired by Leopold.
The date of the screening of the film is significant in that it is Leopold’s birthday.
After the screening, members of the Desolation Wilderness Volunteer program will read short passages from “The Sand County Almanac,” discuss the significance of the 2014 50th anniversary celebration of the creation of the Wilderness Preservation System and will be available to answer trip planning questions for entry into the Desolation Wilderness.
