CT Master Gardeners – “Hometown Habitat” Film Screening

October 25, 2017 • 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The CT Master Gardener Association is sponsoring a showing of “Hometown Habitat”. Award-winning director Catherine Zimmerman (The Meadow Project) has teamed up with entomologist Doug Tallamy, PhD and the Chesapeake Conservation Landscaping Council to produce this 90-minute environmental documentary introducing us to Hometown Habitat Heroes across the nation: ordinary people who are reversing detrimental environmental forces on their land and water, one garden at a time.

This new documentary film raises awareness about the critical role native plants play in 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.
