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

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 6:30PM

Lenfest Theater, Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center

Ursinus College, Collegeville, PA

The feature-length documentary Green Fire was produced in partnership between the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the Center for Humans and Nature, and the US Forest Service. The film provocatively examines Leopold’s thinking, renewing his idea of a land ethic for a population facing 21st century ecological challenges. Leopold’s biographer, conservation biologist and historian Curt Meine, serves as the film’s on-screen guide.

Green Fire describes the formation of Leopold’s idea, exploring how it changed one man and later permeated through all arenas of conservation. The film draws on Leopold’s life and experiences to provide context and validity, then explores the deep impact of his thinking on conservation projects around the world today. Through these examples, the film challenges viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the land community.

The film utilizes photographs, correspondence, manuscripts and other archival documents from the voluminous Aldo Leopold Archives as well as historical film and contemporary full-color footage on location, including landscapes that influenced Leopold and that he in turn influenced.

The film also features commentary and insight from some of today’s most recognized and credible scholars and conservation leaders, including three of Aldo Leopold’s children—Nina, Carl, and Estella, Leopold scholars, noted environmental writers, scientists, humanities experts, public policy leaders, business leaders, and leaders of non-profit groups inspired by Leopold.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Curt Meine, the film’s co-director Steven Dunsky, editor Ann Dunsky, and Ursinus environmental studies professor Richard Wallace.

Orion’s list of jobs

Hi majors,

This site from Orion might be a great one to bookmark.


Subject: know about Orion’s green job + internship board?

Howdy, Quick note wondering if you have heard of Orion’s Jobsource that ‘connects the green leaders of tomorrow with good work today.’ View here if not,

We’ve been hosting this service for 15 years, so it attracts a wide variety of very interesting opportunities, in fields from conservation to sustainable ag and envi education to communication. We send out email updates of new internships, apprenticeships, and jobs once a month to thousands of profs, career centers, academic departments, and jobseekers. Many of these folks forward these messages on to their friends, students, and colleagues, and we love it. If you don’t get this low volume, free email, you can sign up here.

Another thing to alert you about (at the risk of getting semi-commercial here) is that we take display ads for educational programs on the Jobsource. Orion magazine is normally ad-free, so ads always get attention here, plus the jobseekers we get are of the demographic that colleges are seeking to attract — 20ish with some college and higher degree ambitions. Plus, we’re cheap.

Because I know some of you probably get asked by administrators where they ought to do outreach for your programs, please feel free to pass along my contact info when that comes up. Middlebury College, U of WY, Bard College, and Antioch are current or recent advertisers on our site, and are pleased with the results. Happy to supply more info and stats. Erik —
