AL writing at ShackLearn about conservationist Aldo Leopold and his modern legacy in “Green Fire,” which screens at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, in Ohio State’s 2017 Environmental Film Series.

Published in 1949, Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac has “become one of the most respected books about the environment ever published,” a website by the Aldo Leopold Foundation says. Leopold in turn has “come to be regarded by many as the most influential conservation thinker of the 20th century.”

He’s shown at his farm in Wisconsin, where he developed his revolutionary land ethic — described as a “call for moral responsibility to the natural world.”
