March 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In association with Bee City USA and The Meadow Project

Fort Bragg Library Presents

a special screening of

Hometown Habitat, Stories of Bringing Nature Home

Hometown Habitat screeningSave Pollinators. Save Water. Save the Earth. Build an army of “habitat heroes.”

Did you know that native plants – once established – do not require the use of chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides to maintain their beauty? Or that they don’t require extra watering from our precious supply of potable water? Did you know that our native pollinators and birds generally prefer native plants for nectaring and seed?

Doug TallamyYou are invited to attend a free showing of Hometown Habitat – Stories of Bringing Nature Home March 10, 2017, 6 pm @ Fort Bragg Library. Through its profile of 7 hometown habitat heroes, this film will help to answer these questions for you. The narrative thread of this 8-part documentary is provided by renowned entomologist Douglas Tallamy, Ph.D. whose research, books and lectures about the use of non-native plants in landscaping sound the alarm about habitat and species loss. Tallamy challenges the notion that humans are here and nature is someplace else. Tallamy says, “It doesn’t have to and shouldn’t be that way.”

Catherine ZimmermanFor two years, producer/director Catherine Zimmerman and film crew traveled around the country to visit hometown habitat heroes and film their inspiring stories of community commitment to conservation landscaping. Zimmerman shares these success stories and works in-progress that re-awaken and re-define our relationship with nature. The message will inspire you – all of us have the power to support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty to our patch of the Earth. The goal will energize you – to build a new army of habitat heroes and make natural landscaping the new landscaping norm.
