Description

You are invited to attend a free showing of Hometown Habitat—Stories of Bringing Nature Home on Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 2 p.m. at The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 180 Portage Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49007. This documentary film is narrated by renowned entomologist Douglas Tallamy, Ph.D. whose research, books, and lectures show how using native plants in your landscape helps avoid habitat and species loss. Tallamy challenges the notion that humans are here and nature is someplace else.

For two years, producer/director Catherine Zimmerman and film crew traveled around the country to visit hometown habitat heroes and film their inspiring stories of community commitment to conservation landscaping. Zimmerman shares these success stories and works in-progress that re awaken and redefine our relationship with nature. The message will inspire you. All of us have the power to support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty to our patch of the Earth. The goal will energize you to build a new army of habitat heroes and make natural landscaping the new landscaping norm.
