DLC To Host Aldo Leopold Movie

Posted on 21. Jan, 2012 by in Recent News

Join us in the 900 Room of the Davidson College Union for a screening of Green Fire!
See 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. The Davidson Lands Conservancy is hosting a screening of Green Fire for the community. Join us!
A couple of notes about Aldo Leopold.   First, the sandhill cranes in this photo are an American environmental success story.  Aldo Leopold wrote about them in his classic book “A Sand County Almanac.”  Once nearly extinct, they have recovered greatly in number.  Second, the Davidson Lands Conservancy has built and installed a number of “Leopold Benches” at the Lake Davidson Nature Preserve in Davidson, North Carolina.  We encourage you to visit this preserve (located behind Davidson Day School) and sit for a spell on the benches.
