Green Fire with David Rains Wallace
On Friday, May 10th from 7:00-9:30 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse renowned author David Rains Wallace will introduce a film about the life and times of Aldo Leopold called Green Fire. 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. Admission is $10.00 and beer, wine and snacks will be served for an additional donation.
