The meeting from 7–9 PM on Tuesday, August 19th, of the Austin chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas will include a screening of the Emmy-Award-winning documentary “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for our Time.” “Green Fire” explores the life and legacy of famed conservationist Aldo Leopold and the many ways his land ethic philosophy lives on in the work of people and organizations all over the country today. The film shares highlights from Leopold’s life and extraordinary career, explaining how he shaped conservation and the modern environmental movement. It also illustrates Leopold’s continuing influence, exploring current projects that connect people and land at the local level. The film lasts about an hour. As usual, we will also have a seed exchange.

The administration building is on the southeast corner of Greenlee and Exposition. There is parking in the garage, which also has an elevator.
