Aldo Leopold documentary to be shown at CLC
The Central Lakes College Natural Resources Club, Brainerd Lakes Area Audubon Society and Brainerd Area Environmental Learning Network are sponsoring a presentation of “Green Fire,” the first full-length, high-definition documentary film about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold, at 6 p.m. April 10 in E354 on the Brainerd campus at CLC.
“Green Fire” shares highlights from Leopold’s extraordinary career, explaining how he shaped conservation and the modern environmental movement. It also illustrates how Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and land continues to inform and inspire people across the country and around the world.
Leopold’s ideas remain relevant today, continuing to inspire projects nationwide that connect people and land.
The showing, which takes place in the large lecture hall that seats 80, will be preceded by short presentations about Leopold and his book, “A Sand County Almanac,” by Janine Kohn, national coordinator of the Leopold Education Project (LEP) for Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever and Dr. William E. Faber, natural resources instructor at CLC and Minnesota State LEP coordinator.
The event is free and open to the public.
