ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A local nonprofit is sponsoring a showing of a documentary about using native plants to support native pollinators and birds.
The documentary, called "Hometown Habitat - Stories of Bringing Nature Home," will be shown on June 22nd at the Victory Hall Theater in Scottsville.
The Scottsville Center for Arts and Nature is putting on the show as part of its mission to create a space to explore the natural environment through art.
Producer and director Catherine Zimmerman and her crew traveled across the country for two years to visit people called "habitat heroes" and film their stories about community commitment to conservation landscaping.
The film explains how the use of native plants can reduce the use of chemical herbicides and pesticides, reduce the amount of watering required, and support native pollinator and bird populations.
The film will screen at 12 p.m. on June 22.
