Fairfield County UCONN Master Gardeners Carol Hamilton and Jean Stetz-Puchalski are hosting a screening of Hometown Habitat, Stories of Bringing Nature Home at the Easton Public Library Community Room, 691 Morehouse Rd, Easton, CT 06612 on June 7, 2018 at 7pm. FREE and open to the public. Hometown Habitat, Stories of Bringing Nature Home is a 90-minute environmental documentary produced by award-winning filmmaker, Catherine Zimmerman, that focuses on showing how and why native plants are critical to the survival and vitality of local ecosystems. Hometown Habitat uncovers the secret life of local plant and wildlife food webs many do not often get to see. Join us for this screening that inspires and provides the opportunity to learn about how to make a difference in our own landscapes and community gardens.
Hometown Habitat features renowned entomologist Dr. Douglas Tallamy, whose research, books and lectures on the use of non-native plants in landscaping, sound the alarm about habitat and species loss. Tallamy provides the narrative thread that challenges the notion that humans are here and nature is someplace else. “It doesn’t have to and shouldn’t be that way.” Inspiring stories of community commitment to conservation landscaping illustrate Tallamy’s vision by showing how humans and nature can co-exist with mutual benefits. The message? We have the power to support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty to our patch of earth.
