New documentary promotes passion for conservation

After shooting and killing a wolf with a gun, Aldo Leopold saw a “fierce green fire” die in the animal’s eye. The moment moved Leopold to change his outlook on nature and become a dedicated conservationist.
His life and work served as an inspiration for the documentary Green Fire, which Stuart’s Opera House and Wayne National Forest will team up to bring to Southeast Ohio at 7:30 p.m. this Friday.
Leopold learned to understand the land as an all-encompassing entity, said Jeannine Richards, communications director for the Aldo Leopold Foundation. He felt a responsibility to the land and worked throughout his life to promote conservation.
