EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host a free lecture titled "Aldo Leopold, Phenology and Climate Change," at 4 p.m. Oct. 5 in Room 007 of Phillips Science Hall.

Dr. Stanley Temple, a wildlife ecologist and Leopold scholar, will host the informal lecture. Temple retired from UW-Madison in 2007 after a 32-year academic career in ecology and conservation. He now works as a senior fellow and science adviser for the Aldo Leopold Foundation.

The lecture will precede the screening of "Green Fire," which will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 at the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library in Eau Claire. "Green Fire" is the first high-definition full-length documentary film about renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold.

Leopold is regarded as one of the most influential environmentalists of the 20th century. During his lifetime, one of his main works was a conservation project on his land in Baraboo. The site still hosts many seminars and tours today. Leopold's book, "A Sand County Almanac," based on his work and observations at the Baraboo site, has sold more than two million copies since its publication in 1949.
