Join the Lowell Film Collaborative and our dear friends at the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust (LP&CT) as we partner with them for our second Eco-Documentary Film Night at the LP&CT’s Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 8 at 6:30PM. Following their meeting, which is open to the public, we’ll screen the remarkable 72-minute award-winning documentary Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time, which highlights the extraordinary life and work of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, considered by many to be the father of wildlife management and of the United States’ wilderness system.
In addition to his profound work as a conservationist, Leopold was a forester, philosopher, educator, writer, and a wilderness advocate. In Green Fire, a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature, acclaimed actor Peter Coyote joins us as the film’s narrator and guides us through Leopold’s fascinating journey to shaping conservation and the modern environmental movement, which includes his personal vision of a community that cares about both people AND land. It is this philosophy that continues to inform and inspire thousands across the country and around the world.
“Aldo Leopold’s legacy lives on today in the work of people and organizations across the nation and around the world,” says Aldo Leopold Foundation Executive Director Buddy Huffaker in the film’s official press release. “What is exciting about Green Fire is that it is more than just a documentary about Aldo Leopold; it also explores the influence his ideas have had in shaping the conservation movement as we know it today by highlighting some really inspiring people and organizations doing great work to connect people and the natural world in ways that even Leopold might not have imagined.”
In our estimation, no other area non-profit upholds Leopold’s mission and ethic better than the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust, and we are incredibly proud to be a part of their special night — come learn how Aldo Leopold’s ideas remain relevant today and how they have influenced the work of the Trust!
