Aldo Leopold Green Fire Film Screening

Join Wild South for an evening of fellowship and film! This Earth month we kick off our first in a monthly screening of films that inspire and educate the public on important environmental issues and timeless environmental heroes. We will screen The Green Fire, a documentary on the life and work of Aldo Leopold.

 

Aldo Leopold (January 11, 1887 – April 21, 1948) was an American author, philosopher, scientist, ecologist, forester, conservationist, and environmentalist. He was a professor at the University of Wisconsin and is best known for his book A Sand County Almanac (1949), which has sold more than two million copies.

Leopold was influential in the development of modern environmental ethics and in the movement for wilderness conservation. His ethics of nature and wildlife preservation had a profound impact on the environmental movement, with his ecocentric or holistic ethics regarding land. He emphasized biodiversity and ecology and was a founder of the science of wildlife management.
