Metacomet Land Trust and Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary are presenting the film Green Fire on Sunday, April 23rd, at Stony Brook, 108 North Street, in Norfolk. This film about Aldo Leopold will be shown continuously from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. as part of Mass Audubon’s Earth Day programs. The film is 57 minutes long and approximate starting times will be 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to allow for a short discussion after each showing.
Green Fire is 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.
Meet urban children in Chicago learning about local foods and ecological restoration. Meet ranchers in Arizona and New Mexico who maintain healthy landscapes by working on their own properties, and with the neighbors, in cooperative community conservation efforts. Meet wildlife biologists who are bringing threatened and endangered species, from cranes to Mexican wolves, back to the landscapes where they once thrived. And learn how Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and land ties all of these modern conservation stories together, and offers inspiration and insight for the future.
