Aldo Leopold is considered the most important conservationist of the 20th century because his ideas are so relevant to the environmental issues of our time.  He is the father of the national wilderness system, wildlife management and the science of ecological restoration. His classic book A Sand County Almanac still inspires us to see the natural world as a community to which we belong.

Green Fire explores Leopold's personal journey of observation and understanding. It reveals how his ideas resonate with people across the entire American landscape, from inner cities to the most remote wild lands. The film challenges viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the land.

Green Fire is the first feature documentary about Aldo Leopold’s life and contemporary legacy. It features commentary from conservation leaders including scientists, ranchers, scholars and three of Aldo Leopold’s children—Nina, Carl, and Estella. Curt Meine, Leopold’s biographer, serves as the on-camera guide, making connections between Leopold’s ideas and their expression in the conservation movement today.  Peter Coyote gives voice to the Leopold’s brilliant writing.
