What does it mean to be a “green pioneer”? An extraordinary example can be found in legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. Join us on Wednesday evening, October 5 at 7 p.m. for the library’s next Screening Green film, Green Fire:Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time. Although probably best known as the beloved nature writer of the conservation classic A Sand County Almanac, Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and land—his call for a land ethic—continues to encourage us to see the natural world “as a community to which we belong.”
After the film screening, the audience will have the opportunity to become part of a “thinking community” discussion. Volunteer naturalist, Trisha Steele will lead the discussion in talking about the film and how Leopold’s legacy can shape other ideas for fostering a more sustainable community. Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to be the next “green pioneer”.
