ARCADIA, Calif.— On Thursday, April 26 at 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Hahn 101 building at 420 N. Harvard Ave.  Pomona College, Claremont, CA 91711.  The Angeles National Forest will co-sponsor a free screening of a new film called Green Fire, the first full-length, high definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold.     The film shares highlights from Leopold’s life and extraordinary career, explaining how he shaped conservation in the twentieth century and still inspires people today.

The film is part of the “Thinking Like A Watershed” film series presented by the Mellon Elemental Arts Initiative, and the Pomona College Environmental Analysis Program.    Green Fire is one of three films that will be shown during the screening.  Forest Service Film makers Ann and Steve Dunsky along with Forest staff will be on hand to talk about the movie and how watersheds are an integral part of the Angeles.

Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time is a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the US Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature. Although probably best known as the author of the conservation classic A Sand County Almanac, Leopold is also renowned for his work as an educator, philosopher, forester, ecologist, and wilderness advocate.
