HOLLIDAYSBURG – Hometown Habitat: Stories of Bringing Nature Home
September 30, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PMFree
Movie, and discussion — an optional native/non-native hike follows at 3:00.
Come enjoy learning how to transform your own yard, your local park, or congregational property into a haven for wildlife using native plant species. We’ll watch a film about bringing nature back into these places and have a short discussion period after. You’ll learn how to bring nature home and share our common space with the plants, the insects, the birds, and the mammals that support life on earth.
Film runs 90 minutes, and features examples of communities, congregations, and individuals who have changed their outdoor spaces to be more resilient and welcoming, including some houses of worship that have earned Sacred Grounds certification through the Audubon Society. Read more and watch the trailer.
RSVPs help us plan. Contact PA IPL Board member Greg Williams with questions or to let him know you’re coming. Email Greg or call 215-242-0854
