Catherine looks at the growing movement to reduce millions of acres of lawn. Included, clips from her film Hometown Habitat, which connects planting native plants to critical habitat for wildlife.
Before manicured lawns, with their chemicals, mowers and blowers, there were ecological meadows with their butterflies, birds and bees. Zimmerman looks at the growing movement to reduce over 48 million acres of thirsty, pesticide ridden, energy consuming lawns. Included are clips from her film, “Hometown Habitat”, which makes the connection that planting diversity building native plants, is at the core of reclaiming critical habitat for wildlife. “Everything we do to help wildlife actually helps people too. We need clean air, we need clean water, we need healthy soil. Everything we do to create healthy wildlife habitat helps people and wildlife. We can create an environment where both can thrive. That’s the future.” Naomi Edelson, NWF, “Hometown Habitat, Stories of Bringing Nature Home” https://themeadowproject.com
