Aldo Leopold documentary

The Central Lakes College Natural Resources Club, Brainerd Lakes Area Audubon Society, and Brainerd Area Environmental Learning Network present "Green Fire," the first full-length, high-definition documentary film about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold at 6 p.m. April 10 in E354 on the Brainerd campus. "Green Fire" shares highlights from Leopold's 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. Leopold's ideas remain relevant today, continuing to inspire projects nationwide that connect people and land. The showing will be preceded by short presentations about Leopold and "A Sand County Almanac"  by Janine Kohn, national coordinator of the Leopold Education Project for Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever, and Dr. William E. Faber, natural resources instructor at CLC and MN State LEP coordinator.  Cookies and refreshments will be provided. The event is free and open to the public.For more information see
