COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State University’s 2017 Environmental Film Series kicks off Jan. 24 with a look at legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold, author of the classic A Sand County Almanac.Called “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time,” the film starts at 7 p.m. in Room 130 in Ohio State’s Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry (CBEC) building, 151 W. Woodruff Ave. in Columbus. Admission is free and open to the public. Free pizza and beverages will be served at 6:45 p.m. Advance registration isn’t needed.

The Emmy Award-winning “Green Fire,” according to its website, “explores Leopold’s extraordinary career and his enduring influence — tracing how he shaped the modern conservation movement and continues to inspire projects all over the country that connect people and the land.”

A discussion will follow the screening, led by the film’s producer and narrator, Curt Meine, senior fellow with the Baraboo, Wisconsin-based Aldo Leopold Foundation, and Jeff Sharp, director of Ohio State’s School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR).
