The Missouri Humanities Council and the Missouri Department of Conservation are teaming up to present a public screening of Green Fire, a film about the life and influence of conservationist Aldo Leopold. You can view the film trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGIK24N7apQ

Produced through a partnership between the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the Center for Humans and Nature, and the U.S. Forest Service, Green Fire explores the career and enduring influence of conservationist Aldo Leopold. The film examines Leopold’s idea of a land ethic and its relevance to 21st century challenges, in order to inspire viewers to contemplate their relationship with the natural world. At this free public screening of Green Fire, participants will learn more about Leopold’s life and the continued influence of his philosophies on conservation efforts. Following the film, a discussion will allow audience members a chance to respond to the film.
