On Thursday, June 18th, at 6:00 p.m. at the Dragonfly Cinema in Port Orchard, the Hood Canal Watershed Education Network will be hosting a free showing of the Green Fire, an EMMY® award winning film about Aldo Leopold and his idea of the land ethic.
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. 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.
“The Hood Canal Watershed Education Network is thrilled to be hosting this event for the Hood Canal and West Sound communities,” said Michelle Myers, coordinator of the Hood Canal Watershed Education Network. “The network is made up of many dedicated professional environmental educators from across the region and this event is a great example how we work together to connect with the local public to learn more about natural resource issues and opportunities.”
Green Fire is a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature.
