An Evening with David Rains Wallace &
Green Fire
film screening

Friday, May 10th from 7:00-9:30pm at the Arcata Playhouse

An Evening with David Rains WallaceOn Friday, May 10th from 7:00-9:30 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse David Rains Wallace will introduce the film Green Fire about the life and times of Aldo Leopold. 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.

Wild Forest flyer

Join us for the story of a small but committed group of local, tribal, state and federal land managers who embarked upon a mission to bring back prescribed fire as a tool to protect communities and ecosystems across Northern California. Drawing on interviews with scientists, tribal and federal land managers, and savvy residents from across the North State, the film provides insight into how our relationship to fire can be restored.
A panel discussion about regional fire will follow the film.

Panellist scheduled to attend include the film’s producers Will Harling and Jenny Staats, HSU Fire Ecologist Dr. Jeffrey Kane, and Eco-Cultural Restoration Specialist for the Karuk Tribe Bill Tripp.
