Hometown Habitat- Bringing Nature Home
7:00 PM
North Valley Hospital Community Room
Save 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 gathering nectar and seed?

You are invited to attend a free showing of Hometown Habitat - Stories of Bringing Nature Home. Through profiling local “Hometown Habitat Heroes”, this film will help you understand the value of using native plants in landscaping. The narrative thread of this multi-parted 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.”
