The Wilderness Workshop presents the film “Wild for Good” at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Eagle County Community Center in El Jebel.Narrated by Terry Tempest Williams and Page Stegner, “Wild for Good” celebrates the dedication and vision of the Maroon Belles, founders of the Aspen Wilderness Workshop in 1967 – Joy Caudill, Dottie Fox and Connie Harvey.Conservation pioneers for nearly four decades, the three women played leading roles in the enlargement of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass wilderness area and the establishment of the Hunter-Fryingpan, Collegiate Peaks and Raggeds Wilderness Areas – nearly a half-million acres of protected wilderness in all.The organization they founded – now renamed the Wilderness Workshop – has become a model for grassroots environmental advocacy. The film sets the achievements of the trio against the larger backdrop of national conservation efforts, policy and legislation of the past half century, and features interviews with wilderness historian Doug Scott, the Sierra Club’s Maggie Fox and Wilderness Society president Bill Meadows.Snowmass filmmakers Chelsea Congdon and James Brundige of First Light Films produced the film, which will also be screened at Dos Gringos Burritos in Carbondale on Dec. 6 and at the Glenwood Springs Library on Dec. 7.For more information, contact the Wilderness Workshop at 963-3977.
