The winds are howling and the snow and sleet are pelting down, so isn't this a great time to daydream about your spring gardening plans? Join us tomorrow night for a special documentary screening of Hometown Habitat and bring your dreams even closer to reality.
Date: Wednesday, March 15Time: 7pm SharpLocation: Downstairs meeting room at Cold Spring Harbor Library and Environmental Center, 95 Harbor Road, Cold Spring Harbor.
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: All of us have the power to support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty to our patch of the earth.
The goal: Build a new army of habitat heroes.
Join us tonight as we screen this documentary and learn just how you can bring nature home to your own backyard.
Check out the trailer here.

"Conservation is sometimes perceived as stopping everything cold, as holding whooping cranes in higher esteem than people. It is up to science to spread the understanding that the choice is not between wild places or people, it is between a rich or an impoverished existence for Man." Thomas Lovejoy
