The Kansas City Region of the Kansas Native Plant Society, Mr. & Mrs. F.L. Schlagle Library & Environmental Learning Center, and West Wyandotte Public Library are pleased to present the movie “Green Fire,” a movie about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. Friday, April 20, 2012 at the library, located at 4051 West Drive in Wyandotte County Lake Park in Kansas City, KS. Aldo Leopold and his writings are as important today as they were when he penned them many decades ago. Leopold advocated a conservation philosophy known as the land ethic, a belief that natural resources are shared by all forms of life, not just for human consumption and exploitation. Excerpts from Leopold’s book “A Sand County Almanac” will be read prior to the movie; from 6:30 to 6:50 p.m. Refreshments will be available. Seating is limited so please call the library at 913.299.2384 to reserve a seat for this special showing.
