Hometown Habitat: Stories of Bringing Nature Home
Inspired by Dr. Tallamy’s Bringing Nature Home, Catherine Zimmerman produced Hometown Habitat, a collection of stories told by people looking to reduce lawn in exchange for the beauty and abundance of meadows. These stories are the touchstone for going further in spreading the idea of selecting for native plants. How might we spread the news of native plants and natural projects in our communities and nationwide? What does it take to make a difference locally and nationally? Catherine explores approaches to connect with and inspire schools, organizations, individuals, neighborhood groups, agencies, and more, to create healthy habitats for humans and wildlife.
