KC hosts free showing of ‘Green Fire’ documentary

Kishwaukee College will host a free showing of the documentary “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for our Time” at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Student Lounge, Room C1130, in the Student Center. The showing will be preceded by a public reading of excerpts from Leopold’s seminal conservation work, “A Sand County Almanac.” This event is free and open to the public.

“Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for our Time” is a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service and the Center for Humans and Nature. The film shares highlights from Leopold’s life and extraordinary career, explaining how his work shaped conservation in the 20th century and still inspires people today.  

Aldo Leopold (1887-1948) was a professor at the University of Wisconsin with a long work history in U.S. Forest Service. Over the years, he developed theories of land and wildlife management. After purchasing 80 acres of scarred and barren land in central Wisconsin, Leopold put his theories into practice. He documented his experiences in “A Sand County Almanac,” completing the book just prior to his death. Leopold is regarded by many as one of the most influential conservation thinkers of the 20th century.

The film “Green Fire” illustrates Leopold’s continuing influence by exploring current projects that connect people and the land at the local level. “Green Fire” portrays how Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and land – his call for a “land ethic” – ties all these modern conservation stories together and offers inspiration and insight for the future.
