The movie, Hometown Habitat: Stories of Bringing Nature Home, will show what everyday Americans are doing to help bring back more native species through projects and programs across the country. This 90-minute environmental, education documentary by award-winning director Catherine Zimmerman and featuring widely known author Dr. Doug Tallamy, will be an inspiration to all who see it.

In May, 2015 our Habitat Hero program was filmed for some additional footage for Hometown Habitat, during our educational workshop and planting of a Habitat Hero demonstration garden at BATH Garden Center & Nursery!  We are honored to be selected as one of the inspiring stories of community commitment to conservation landscaping that illustrates Tallamy’s vision by showing how humans and nature can co-exist with mutual benefits.
