The first full-length documentary film ever made about environmentalist Aldo Leopold, it highlights Leopold's career, tracing how he shaped and influenced the modern environmental movement.

The film will be shown from 7:30-9 p.m. in the Hankison Great Room at the preserve, 29530 White Road, Perrysburg. A brief discussion will follow the film, and drinks and popcorn will be served.
