A shortened version of the film described below will be shown followed by a discussion led by RCWO member Nancy Bedell.
Hometown Habitat is an environmental, education documentary focused on showing how and why native plants are critical to the survival and vitality of local ecosystems. Featured is entomologist, Doug Tallamy, whose research, books and lectures on the misuse of non-native plants in landscaping sound the alarm about habitat and species loss. Tallamy provides the narrative thread throughout Hometown Habitat. The message: each individual has the power to conserve resources, restore habitat for wildlife and bring beauty to their patch of earth.
