The Evanston Environmental Association and the Evanston Ecology Center will host a series of environment-themed films in March, April and May.
“Green Fire” will be screened at 7 p.m. on March 15 at the Evanston Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd. “Green Fire” is the first full-length, high-definition documentary film made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold and his environmental legacy.
The film series highlights modern projects that put Mr. Leopold’s land ethic in action in a multitude of ways, including a project in Chicago.
