Carleton College will present a special public screening of the acclaimed Emmy Award-winning documentary film, “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time,” on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Weitz Center for Creativity Cinema. The screening is sponsored by Carleton’s Cowling Arboretum and the Cannon River Watershed Partnership, a Northfield-based volunteer organization that works toward “protecting and improving the water quality and natural systems of the Cannon River watershed.” This event is free and open to the public.


“Green Fire” is the first full-length, high-definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. Influential in the development of modern environmental ethics and in the movement for wilderness conservation, the film explores Leopold’s life in the early part of the twentieth century and the many ways his ‘land ethic’ continues to be applied all over the world today.
