Win tickets to premiere of 'Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time'

February 16, 2011

On Friday, March 4, and Sunday, March 6, a new high-definition documentary film about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold and his environmental legacy will premiere in Madison, Wis. "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 across the country and around the world. Nelson Institute alumnus and Leopold scholar Curt Meine (Land Resources Ph.D., '88) narrates the film, which has shown to sold-out crowds at previous premieres. Several other Institute faculty and UW alumni also play prominent roles in the film.
