Film: Hometown Habitat—Stories of Bringing Nature Home(7 p.m.)
Event Sponsor: Triad Chapter
You are invited to attend a free showing of Hometown Habitat, a documentary focused on showing how and why native plants are critical to the survival and vitality of local ecosystems.
The narrative thread of this 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 gives hope that “it is not yet too late to save most of the plants and animals that sustain the ecosystems on which we ourselves depend. Restoring native plants to most human-dominated landscapes is relatively easy to do.”
Q&A with representatives from the NC Native Plant Society, T. G. Pearson Audubon, and the Piedmont Land Conservancy. Film Chapters: The Basics, Douglas Tallamy; Ecosystem Services, Million Trees NYC; Water Conservation, Habitat Hero Program; Restoration and Conservation Development, Steven Apfelbaum; Environmental Activism, Wild Ones.
Free and open to public - invite your friends! Visit https://themeadowproject.com to learn more.
Please join us Wednesday, February 22nd at 7 p.m. at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Library, 1420 Price Park Dr, Greensboro, NC 27410 (phone 336-373-2923). All are welcome, though of course we hope you’ll be inspired to join the NCNPS and support efforts to plant more natives and wildlife habitat!
