DuPage Monarch Project and the River Prairie Group of the Illinois Sierra Club are hosting a FREE screening of Plants, Pollinators and Prayers on Wednesday, February 15th, 7:00 pm at the Bloomingdale Public Library.
Plants, Pollinators & Prayers is a recent documentary about a local community’s efforts to bring monarch butterflies back to Northern Illinois. Inspired to action by the loss of Midwestern prairie habitat and the decline of the monarch butterfly population, this documentary follows the multi-year efforts of a gardener, educator, and pastor as they transform a rural church’s backyard into a monarch waystation–a sanctuary for pollinating animals, an educational garden for the community, and a sacred space for spiritual contemplation.
There will be a Q & A after the screening with the filmmaker, the gardener and the environmental educator from the documentary.
