VALLEJO, Calif., Nov. 19, 2012 – Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time has been honored with an Emmy ® award for best historical documentary at the 54th annual Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The awards were presented at Chicago's Alhambra Theater on Nov. 18.

Green Fire is the first feature documentary about the legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold (1887-1948). The father of the national wilderness system, Leopold was a key figure in developing the fields of wildlife management, restoration ecology and sustainable agriculture.

Green Fire was produced by the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service and the Center for Humans and Nature with Wisconsin Public Television as the broadcast partner. The ceremony was broadcast live in Chicago and on the internet. Aldo Leopold Foundation board member Rett Nelson accepted the award for the production team.

"We are delighted to see Green Fire win such a prestigious award," said Pacific Southwest Regional Forester Randy Moore. "Leopold shaped conservation in the 20th century and still inspires people today. He was a pioneer in the field of ecological restoration which is our priority for the U.S. Forest Service here in California."

Earlier this year, Wisconsin Public Television began broadcasting the one-hour program statewide. It will be available to all public television stations for Earth Day in April 2013. A slightly longer version of the documentary has screened in theaters and over 2,000 community venues since its premiere in February 2011.

Green Fire has won awards at several film festivals, as well as a Silver Telly and a Cine Golden Eagle. A complete list of awards and festivals, along with other information about the film, is available at: www.greenfiremovie.com

Leopold worked for the U.S. Forest Service from 1909 to 1928. Since the early 1990s, his ideas have increasingly influenced the management of the national forests.
