Date: Mon April 19, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm
Place: Zoom Presentation
Contact Email: Lymepollinator@gmail.com
!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.

 

Join us for part two of an Earth Day kick-off of Lyme Pollinator Pathway! We will bring you an inspiring live zoom presentation with producer/director Catherine Zimmerman to celebrate the launch. For two years, she and her film crew traveled around the country to create Hometown Habitat – Stories of Bringing Nature Home. They filmed inspiring stories of community commitment to protect the landscape and habitat of pollinators. Zimmerman shares these success stories and works in-progress that re-awaken and re-define our relationship with nature. The message will inspire you – all of us have the power to support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty to our patch of the Earth.

During the weekend before Catherine’s presentation, we have provided you with the opportunity to watch the movie Hometown Habitat-Stories of Bringing Nature Home, It is accessible at any time for free streaming from Friday, April 16 to Sunday, April 18, 2021. The movie is not available to watch online at other times. For more information on the movie streaming.

Sue Cope will moderate the April 19 program and explain the Lyme Pollinator Pathway effort. Lyme Pollinator Pathway was established on February 4, 2021.  As part of a national effort, Lyme Pollinator Pathway aims to help Lyme neighbors and friends create and connect pollinator-friendly habitats with food sources for bees, butterflies, birds, and other pollinators. We wish to encourage as many people as possible to plant patches, big or small, of native pollinator-friendly vegetation. If we can grow enough patches, they will connect like stepping stones to create a pollinator pathway of nutrition and protection. Even the smallest patch can create a sense of satisfaction for your participation in this vital community project.

Register for one or both of the events: Lymepollinator@gmail.com.  In the email let us know if you are registering for the 1) Hometown Habitat movie, 2) the Zimmerman presentation, or both. You will be sent a link a few days before the programs.

Lyme Pollinator Pathway (LPP) is an initiative of the Lyme SustainableCT Committee, which is appointed by the Lyme Board of Selectmen. Sponsors of the event are LPP,  the Lyme Land Trust, the Lyme Garden Club, the Lyme Public Library (LPL), and the Friends of the LPL. The programs are funded by the Lyme Land Trust through a gift from the Pleasant Valley Association.

To Kick-off Lyme Pollinator Pathway and in honor of Earth Day 2021, you are invited to watch a free streaming of the inspiring movie Hometown Habitat – Stories of Bringing Nature Home, at your leisure. Participants can access and re-access the film throughout the three days from Friday, April 16 through Sunday, April 18. Through its profile of 7 hometown habitat heroes, this 90 minutes film shows how we can save our vital pollinators, such as bees, birds, and others. The narrative thread of this 8-part documentary is provided by renowned entomologist Douglas Tallamy, Ph.D. whose research, books, and lectures about increasing the use of native plants in landscaping, and other actions, provide solutions for habitat and species loss. Tallamy challenges the notion that humans are here and nature is someplace else.

For the official launch of Lyme Pollinator Pathway, we are offering a very special Earth Day program in two parts. A showing of the very Hometown Habitat movie and an in-person interview with the producer/director Catherine Zimmerman. For more about the Zimmerman Presentation.
