The Aldo Leopold Foundation, based in Baraboo, Wisconsin is distributing the film to community screeners. The foundation’s mission is to inspire an ethical relationship between people and land through the legacy of Aldo Leopold. Leopold regarded a land ethic as a product of social evolution. “Nothing so important as an ethic is ever ‘written,’” he explained.  “It evolves ‘in the minds of a thinking community.’”  Learn more about the Aldo Leopold Foundation and the Green Fire movie at http://www.aldoleopold.org/.
