‘Hometown Heroes’ film urges pollinator habitats
- Published: November 13, 2017
Tecumseh Land Trust and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will sponsor the first area screening of “Hometown Habitat: Stories of Bringing Nature Home” by Catherine Zimmerman on Sunday, Dec. 3, at 4 p.m. at the Little Art Theatre. The film takes viewers around the country as Zimmerman explores how local communities and individuals are building an army of “habitat heroes” by planting native species on their properties to attract pollinators like bees, birds and butterflies. Pollinators play a critical role in earth’s ecosystem, and habitats friendly to pollinators have decreased dramatically in the United States.
Zimmerman and The Meadow Project produced the film to help audiences understand how they can “Save Pollinators. Save Water. Save the Earth.” The Land Trust and the Fellowship hope the film will build awareness of the importance of pollinator-friendly habitat and encourage local action by homeowners, businesses and local groups to encourage diverse native habitat.
Admission is $5, and tickets may be purchased in advance at the box office. For more information, visit themeadowproject.com.
