A Special Documentary Screening:


Green Fire:


Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic

For Our Time


Tonight Huntington-Oyster Bay Audubon will host a screening of the first full-length, high-definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold and his environmental legacy!

Green Fire shares highlights from his 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, highlighting modern projects that put Leopold’s land ethic in action in a multitude of ways.

Green Fire illustrates Leopold’s continuing influence by exploring current projects that connect people and land at the local level. Viewers will meet urban children in Chicago learning about local foods and ecological restoration. They’ll learn about ranchers in Arizona and New Mexico who maintain healthy landscapes by working on their own properties and with their neighbors, in cooperative community conservation efforts. They’ll meet wildlife biologists who are bringing back threatened and endangered species, from cranes to Mexican wolves, to the landscapes where they once thrived. The Green Fire film portrays how Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and land—his call for a land ethic—ties all of these modern conservation stories together and offers inspiration and insight for the future.
Location:
Cold Spring Harbor Library, 95 Harbor Road, Cold Spring Harbor. Right next door to CSH State Park. Meet in the large meeting room downstairs.
