Green Fire Showing
July 25, 2014 9:00 pm in Clarendon, PA
Chapman State Park
Friends of Allegheny Wilderness, Allegheny Outfitters, Allegheny National Forest, Chapman State Park, and Conewango Creek Watershed Association are teaming up to co-present a film at the outdoor amphitheatre at Chapman State Park on Friday evening, July 25th at 9:00 p.m. in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act of 1964, free of charge to the public.

The film, a biographical documentary about Aldo Leopold — an early 20th-century wilderness advocate, leader within the U.S. Forest Service, and co-founder of The Wilderness Society — is titled Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for our Time. The Wilderness Society, of course, is the organization that led the charge to see the Wilderness Act passed, establishing America’s National Wilderness Preservation System for all future generations to use and enjoy.

Come 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.
