“A thing is right only when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the community and the community includes the soil, waters, fauna and flora, as well as people. [A thing] is wrong when it tends otherwise.” This is how Aldo Leopold defined an ecological standard of morality in his address, The Ecological Conscience. It is what has become known as his Land Ethic. Lorbiecki’s concise, highly-readable biography provided the basis for the new film of Leopold’s life – Green Fire – which will premier with our co-sponsorship at StageNorth in Washburn on Thursday, April 28th. The book is beautifully illustrated with a large collection of photographs interspersed throughout.
