TRYON—Conserving Carolina, The Gardening For Life Project, and the Congregational Church, UCC in Tryon’s Creation Justice Team are inviting the public for a free community movie night, “The Nature Makers,” at the Tryon Theater on Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m.

“The Nature Makers is a moving portrait of passionate people and the extraordinary creatures they’re fighting to preserve,” says the film’s director Scott Saunders. “In a world increasingly dominated by humans, three teams of wildlife conservationists go to extraordinary and seemingly unnatural lengths to try to save three threatened species in the American heartland.

“Stunningly photographed in the Grand Canyon and on the American prairie, ‘The Nature Makers’ follows rugged biologists who’ve deployed helicopters, giant bulldozers and a host of human tools to defend wild nature. In the 21st century, defending the wild often requires, quite paradoxically, technology and aggressive human intervention. It’s the story of how we found ourselves on the brink of losing so much of the natural world around us.”
