SUTHERLAND - Aldo Leopold, an Iowa native, is probably best known as the author of the timeless classic A Sand County Almanac. He was also renowned for his work as an educator, philosopher, forester, ecologist and wilderness advocate.

Oct. 20 the O'Brien County Conservation Board is hosting a free screening of the film "Green Fire." This 70 minute, high definition documentary explores Aldo Leopold's life in the early part of the 20th century and the many ways that his conservation land ethic continues to be applied all over the world today.

Leopold's vision of the relationship between people and the land continue to inspire people across the country and the world.

Come and enjoy the film screening at the Prairie Heritage Center on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 2 p.m.

After viewing impacts brought about by Aldo Leopold's work, consider exploring his most famous book. Join others in reading A Sand County Almanac. A follow-up book discussion will be held on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m.

Explore the land lessons that a fellow Iowan has to offer. For more information about these opportunities, contact the Conservation Board at 712-295-7200.
