A free screening of "Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time" will be 5-7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 23, in the Hardin Hall auditorium.
Scott Hygnstrom, the School of Natural Resources professor who organized the screening that was earlier this month, said that graduate students contacted him afterward and asked for a repeat performance, because many had been unable to attend the first time. Fortunately, a site license allows SNR to show the film repeatedly. Hygnstrom will introduce the film and lead discussion afterward.
The 72-minute documentary, produced by the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature, shares highlights from Leopold's life and career. It was released in early 2011. According to the foundation in his name, "Although probably best known as the author of the conservation classic A Sand County Almanac, Leopold is also renowned for his work as an educator, philosopher, forester, ecologist and wilderness advocate."
A trailer is available at the web address below.
