Welty environmental expo features screening of Green Fire

"There are two things that interest me: the relation of people to each other and the relation of people to land." Aldo Leopold.

On Friday, Sept 9 Rock County Parks and the Welty Environmental Center will host an expo of local environmental organizations that help spread Wisconsin environmental pioneer, Aldo Leopold's, message on a daily basis to today's generations.

Leopold, the man who wrote "Sand County Almanac" is still regarded as the nexus from which the American environmental movement rose. Even now his work, which began in a forest in Arizona, reaches out and speaks to us about building a new relationship between people and land.

The Green Fire documentary screening will be held at 7:30 pm at Beckman Mill County Park – near the pavilion. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets for enjoying the film.

Tickets are $2 in advance, $3 at the door and are available either at the Welty Environmental Center (608-361-1377) or the Rock County Parks Department (608-757-5473). – Concessions available for sale.

Attending the expo and viewing Green Fire can be used as educational hours for MGVs.
