Please join us on Thursday, March 16, 2017 for a free movie night and bring the family! We are presenting excerpts from “Hometown Habitat,” an environmental documentary film showing why native plants are critical to the survival and vitality of local ecosystems. The message of the movie is that each individual has the power to conserve resources, restore habitat for wildlife and bring beauty to his or her patch of earth. The documentary features and is narrated by entomologist and native plant advocate Doug Tallamy, who is a teacher, presenter and researcher on topics related to biodiversity and restoration of natural plants. Due to the movie length, only portions will be played.
This viewing is being generously co-sponsored by Sebert Landscape and Bluestem Ecological Services, providing sustainable landscape solutions.
The free showing will take place from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Prairie Center For The Arts in Schaumburg, Illinois. Each attendee will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of BACT’s heart shaped suets, to support wild birds in your own backyard. This event is free for both BACT Members and Non-members.
