August 31st: Green Fire!

Posted on Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

The Idaho Panhandle National Forests and the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness will host a free screening of a new film called Green Fire, the first full-length, high definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. 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.

Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time is a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the US Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature. The film shares highlights from Leopold’s life and extraordinary career, explaining how he shaped conservation in the twentieth century and still inspires people today. 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.

Green Fire will be shown at the Panida Theater, 300 N First Avenue.

Doors will open at 6:30 PM. Movie begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and on a first come first serve basis.  A cash bar will be provided by Eichardt’s Pub and Grill.
