In the film, Catherine and crew introduce us to experts who share the science behind how today’s ‘native-plants-know-best’ enthusiasts, landscape architects, and conservation groups are helping others appreciate the benefits of low-maintenance, seasonally dynamic and eco-healthy landscapes.

The stories they tell through their travels touch on all aspects of the benefits of native plants and bring to light a sense of community that makes conservation landscaping possible. The message will inspire you – all of us have the power to support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty, through native landscaping, to our patch of the Earth. 

Space is limited for the showing and pre-registration is required. The Box Office and theatre will be open at 6:30 p.m. Please arrive before 7 p.m. to allow time for check-in, concessions and finding your seat.
