Gateway a host site for Aldo Leopold documentary screening

The Emmy-winning Aldo Leopold documentary “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time” will be shown 7 p.m. May 16 at Gateway Technical College’s Center for Sustainable Living on its Kenosha Campus, 3520-30th Ave.

The free screening will be followed by a discussion on environmental issues as well as the legendary environmentalist and Wisconsin resident. While the cost is free, RSVP is requested and can be done by e-mailing James Gray at or calling (262) 564-2196.

Leopold was a 20th Century forester, philosopher, educator, writer and outdoor enthusiast. He is considered by many as the father of wildlife management and his published works continue to impact land ethics even today. His best-known work may well be “A Sand County Almanac,” a collection of 41 essays.

Green Fire is the first full-length documentary made on Leopold, celebrating his life and work.
