Movie Night: Green Fire – Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time

July 20, 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Henry W. Coe State Park staff and volunteers for a free movie screening of “Green Fire” and discussion of “The Land Ethic”. Green Fire is the first feature length, high definition documentary film ever made about famed conservationist Aldo Leopold. Emmy-Award winning narrator Peter Coyote lends his talent as the voice of Aldo Leopold, and the film’s on-screen guide is Curt Meine, Leopold’s biographer. The film explores Aldo Leopold’s life in the early part of the twentieth century and the many ways his land ethic idea continues to be applied all over the world today.

Agenda:

– Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Come early to meet other nature lovers.
– The film will start promptly at 6:00 p.m. The film’s run time is 50 minutes.
– A Land Ethic Discussion will follow the film lead by Teri Rogoway – Leopold Education Project (LEP) California Representative

About Green Fire:

GREEN FIRE was produced in partnership between the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the Center for Humans and Nature, and the US Forest Service. The film provocatively examines Aldo Leopold’s thinking, renewing his idea of a land ethic for a population facing 21st-century ecological challenges. GREEN FIRE describes the formation of Leopold’s idea, exploring how it changed one man and later permeated through all areas of conservation. The film draws on Leopold’s life and experiences to provide context and validity, challenging viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the land community.

Note: This movie is provided to us “Royalty Free” by the very kind folks at the Aldo Leopold Foundation. A donation to the Aldo Leopold Foundation is suggested.
