Event Description

Green Fire is an award winning documentary about the conservationist Aldo Leopold (1887-1948). He is the father of the national wilderness system, and a key figure in developing the fields of wildlife management, restoration ecology and sustainable agriculture. This film is free, but a donation is appreciated to help defray the costs of purchasing public screening.

The first full-length documentary film ever made about legendary environmentalist Aldo Leopold, Green Fire highlights Leopold’s extraordinary career, tracing how he shaped and influenced the modern environmental movement.
Leopold remains relevant today, inspiring projects all over the country that connect people and land.
The Green Fire film portrays how Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and land—his call for a land ethic—ties all of these modern conservation stories together and offers inspiration and insight for the future, on Earth Day and every day.

The film’s on screen guide is conservation biologist and Leopold biographer, Curt Meine. He wrote the biography, Aldo Leopold: His Life and Work in 1988.
The film uses Meine to help explore Leopold’s continuing influence. Meine highlights a multitude of modern conservation efforts that connect people and land at the local level. He helped to produce Green Fire and served as narrator for the film. We will have the honor to have Curt Meine at Michael Fields on July 19th. He will introduce the movie and will respond questions after the show.

We encourage everyone to come to see this incredible film. What a great opportunity to know more about the life of Aldo Leopold and his commitment with the nature.

When: Friday, July 19th at 7pm
