Screening and Discussion of "Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time"

  • Main Interior Building, Room 115 (1849 C Street, NW, Washington, DC)

The DOI Library is hosting an exclusive screening and discussion of a recently produced film entitled Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time.

Green Fire; produced by the Aldo Leopold Foundation, U.S. Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature; is a film that highlights legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold’s extraordinary career.  “Aldo Leopold’s legacy lives on today…,” said Aldo Leopold Foundation Executive Director Buddy Huffaker.  “What is exciting about Green Fire is that it is more than just a documentary about Aldo Leopold; it also explores the influence his ideas have had in shaping the conservation movement as we know it today by highlighting some really inspiring people and organizations doing great work to connect people and the natural world in ways that even Leopold might not have imagined.”  

Please join us and the Interior Department's Office of Youth, Partnerships, and Service for this screening and facilitated discussion.  Participants will reflect on Leopold’s sense of “community” and the “land ethic” as they apply to the federal government's science and stewardship mission.
