“I can go inside now, confident that the youth of distant tomorrows
will backpack down winding forest trails, glimpse the sliver of a wildness lake
shining through the trees, and gather round their crackling campfire."
—Paul Schaefer

TIME: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

LOCATION: Saratoga Institute, Open Space Gallery

ADDRESS: 110 Spring Street, Saratoga Springs, NY

See the first full-length, high-definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold and his environmental legacy. Green Fire shares highlights from his extraordinary career, explaining how he shaped conservation and the modern environmental movement. It also illustrates how Leopold's vision of a community that cares about both people and land continues to inform and inspire people across the country and around the world, highlighting projects that put Leopold’s land ethic into action today.

Also scheduled are readings from Leopold’s famous A Sand County Almanac, and a community discussion led by Adirondack Wild members and special guests. Join us as we celebrate Earth Day and commemorate Leopold’s Legacy.

The Event is Free of Charge; donations to support the work of Adirondack Wild are welcome. For more information: www.GreenFireMovie.com, and www.adirondackwild.org.
