On Friday, May 10th from 7:00-9:30 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse David Rains Wallace will introduce the film Green Fire about the life and times of Aldo Leopold. Leopold is generally considered the major American conservationist of the twentieth century. Our ideas of wilderness preservation, biodiversity conservation, and ecological integrity essentially come from him. Leopold’s book, A Sand County Almanac, develops these ideas as well as his concept of the land ethic, which proposes extending to land and its non-human life the "right to life" traditionally reserved for human beings. Wallace has written about Leopold in Sierra magazine, the New York Times Book Review. and the Los Angeles Times Book Review.
