This will be the first documentary on the life and legacy of Aldo Leopold, arguably the greatest conservationist of the 20th century. The author of A Sand County Almanac greatly influenced the wilderness preservation system as well as the fields of wildlife management and restoration ecology. Filmed around the country and including interviews with today’s conservation leaders—all with their own dog-eared copies of Leopold’s book—this short film offers a small sample of the feature-length program, which will be complete in late 2010. Produced by Steve Dunsky, Ann Dunsky and Dave Steinke of the U.S. Forest Service in partnership with the Aldo Leopold Foundation.
Introduced by Jeffrey Stine, Chair, Division of Medicine and Science, National Museum of American History. Discussion with filmmakers Ann Dunsky and Steve Dunsky follows screening.
