Aldo Leopold in the Southwest

Wed. 2/2: A one-hour program that celebrates the life of the man who wrote "A Sand County Almanac", and introduced Ethics as the fundamental concept that should underlie all consideration regarding use of land and water.

Leopold spent many years in New Mexico and Arizona, and was greatly influenced by the landscape of the American Southwest. The program includes voices of Leopold's daughters, Nina and Estella, as well others who were deeply influenced by Leopold including William deBuys, Dave Foreman, Stewart Udall, Susan Flader, Courtney White and others. The program was produced by Jack Loeffler and will pre-empt Living on Earth on this date.

The program precedes the premiere of GREEN FIRE: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time, the first full-length documentary film ever made about the legendary conservationist. The film screens at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, Saturday, February 5 at 6:30 p.m.
