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. The Green Fire film portrays how Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and the land-his call for a land ethic-ties all of these modern conservation stories together and offers inspiration and insight for the future.
The film will be followed by an hour long panel discussion with four local leaders from the community. Each panel member will have a chance to answer some questions from the moderator as well as questions from the audience.
“I am very excited to host this film and am looking forward to a community dialogue from our panel members and audience regarding sustainable resource management,” said Kate Klein, Forest Supervisor for the Ochoco National Forest.
