Recently, the Sustainability Studies program celebrated Earth Day by hosting a successful viewing of the new Aldo Leopold documentary film, Green Fire.
Well-attended by a variety of community members despite harsh weather conditions, the screening was followed by a moderated discussion on local and global environmental issues. Michael Hutchins, Executive Director and CEO of The Wildlife Society, in his review of the film, stated it “should be mandatory viewing for any student in a natural resource field, indeed for anyone who values nature, wilderness, and wildlife.”
Associate Professor Mike Bryson introduced the film and moderated discussion afterwards–and then blogged about the event. Bryson’s most recent course, SUST 210, is continuing the conversation about sustainability and the Schaumburg campus.
