Green Fire Showing
September 25, 2014 6:30 pm in Roanoke, VA
Taubman Theater
Screening with Special Guest Ed Zahniser
Join national Wilderness icon Ed Zahniser in a screening of “Green Fire” at the Taubman Theater in downtown Roanoke. Ed’s father Howard was the primary author of the 1964 Wilderness Act and Ed has been a champion of Wilderness since his childhood. This noted author, scholar and poet join us for a screening of “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for our Time”. “Green Fire describes the formation of Leopold’s idea, exploring how it changed one man and later permeated through all arenas of conservation. The film draws on Leopold’s life and experiences to provide context and validity, then explores the deep impact of his thinking on conservation projects around the world today. Through these examples, the film challenges viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the land community” (www.aldoleopold.org)

McCormick's Creek State Park
The Environmental Education Association of Indiana's annual conference. The theme this year is "Land Ethic". We felt that the time is right to have a discussion of the reason for Environmental Education. We will still learn a lot about techniques, resources, and status of EE, but we will also study some of Aldo Leopold's philosophy of a land ethic while learning what a land ethic is and developing our own land ethic. Aldo Leopold Foundation Executive Director Buddy Huffaker will be a keynote speaker.
