Film Synopsis  
The first full-length documentary film ever made about legendary conservation thinker Aldo Leopold, Green Fire explores Leopold’s extraordinary career and his enduring influence – tracing how he shaped the modern conservation movement and continues to inspire projects all over the country that connect people and the land. A timely film screening in light of current worries about the federal government’s continued commitment to environmental management/protection and the political divide on these issues.
