‘Green Fire’ film tells Aldo Leopold story

On Sunday, March 18, the Whidbey Audubon Society and Whidbey Environmental Action Network will host the screening of a new film called “Green Fire,” the first full-length, high definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold.

The film explores Aldo Leopold’s life in the early part of the 20th century and the many ways his land ethic idea continues to be applied all over the world today.

The film explains how he shaped conservation in his time and how he still inspires people today.  It will be shown one time only at the Pacific Rim Institute, 180 Parker Road, south of Coupeville. It will be introduced and discussed by his daughter, Estella Leopold, Professor Emeritus, University of Washington.

Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. They are available at Linds Pharmacy and the Bayleaf in Coupeville, and brownpapertickets.com. Seating is limited.

Proceeds support the stewardship and education efforts of the Pacific Rim Institute, which can be reached at 678-5586.
