On Saturday, March 5 at 10 am, the Crossroads at Big Creek and Door County Library will present a free screening of Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time, a film about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. The screening will take place at the Crossroads.
Hosted by Ray Osinski, a trained interpreter from the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the film will explore Leopold’s life in the early part of the 20th century and the many ways his land ethic idea continues to be applied all over the world today. 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.
Green Fire will illustrate Leopold’s continuing influence by exploring current projects that connect people and land at the local level. The film will feature urban children in Chicago learning about local foods and ecological restoration, ranchers in Arizona and New Mexico who maintain healthy landscapes, and wildlife biologists who are bringing back threatened and endangered species.
The Crossroads at Big Creek is located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay. For more information visit http://www.doorcountylibrary.org /aldo-leopold.
