Green Fire: Aldo Leopold & a Land Ethic for Our Time

January 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Would you love to do something to celebrate nature indoors this winter? Take a break, have some popcorn, and enjoy the Emmy-Award winning documentary Green Fire with us at the Prairie Woods Nature Center. Iowa native Aldo Leopold created the discipline of wildlife management and was a pioneering conservationist.   His ground-breaking “land ethic” suggests that “We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”  Ann Lundberg will lead this program, and invite you to continue in celebrating Aldo Leopold with a discussion of his book A Sand County Almanac on Feb 12th

 

Instructor Ann Lundberg teaches at Dordt University and with the Creation Care Studies Program in Kaikoura, New Zealand; she specializes in environmental literature and nature writing. A native of Colorado, she has a Bachelor’s degree in geology from the University of Wyoming and has spent several summers working as a Ranger with the National Park Service.   

Pre-registration appreciated. All ages welcome
