“I hope that by making these materials available more people will be able to enjoy the beauty of Leopold’s writing and learn from his unique life journey about the importance of land ethics and conservation,” said Lannom.
Green Fire, the first full length documentary made about Aldo Leopold, explores Leopold’s life in the early part of the twentieth century and the many ways his land ethic shaped conservation in modern times and continues to inspire people today.
“The McCall Public Library would like to thank the Payette National Forest, Mr. Lannom and Ms. Pramuk for the great donation to our conservation collection. The book is absolutely splendid, full of breathtaking pictures, and the subject of land ethic should be of great interest to all Idahoans, who have so much wilderness area in their immediate vicinity. Anyone interested in the pros and cons of wildlife conservation, especially wolves, should watch the DVD”, said McCall Public Library Director Anne Kantola.
The Sand County Almanac is considered to be one of the finest examples of nature writing since Thoreaus’s “Walden” and is one of the most influential works ever written about humans and the environment.
"After attending the Green Fire presentation in New Meadows and learning about Aldo Leopold, the Meadows Valley Public Library is very pleased to receive copies of A Sand County Almanac and the Green Fire DVD. We would like to thank Laura, Keith and the Payette National Forest for making it possible to add these to our collection,” said Crogh.
Additional donations to area high schools and libraries will take place in the future.
