Aldo Leopold was one of the nation's first foresters. His ideas about the need to protect wild places and about how people should treat the land are still having an impact a century later. A new documentary chronicles Leopold's life. Ryan Warner speaks with Dave Steinke of the U.S. Forest Service in Denver, who helped put the film together. For more about the movie click here.
