Lincoln Land Conservation Trust

 

Free. All are welcome. Movie refreshments provided. This movie is part of a series of programs in 2020 kicking off a Lincoln Pollinator Action Plan initiative. Award winning director, Catherine Zimmerman, traveled across the country to visit Hometown Habitat heroes, who are reversing detrimental impacts on the land and in the water of major U.S. watersheds, one garden at a time. They share success stories and works-in-progress that celebrate conservation landscaping that re-awakens and redefines our relationship with Nature. The stories illustrate the benefits of native plants and brings to light a sense of community that makes conservation landscaping possible. Renowned entomologist, author (Bringing Nature Home), and environmental activist, Dr. Douglas Tallamy, provides the narrative thread.

Save Pollinators. Save Water. Save the Earth. Build an army of “habitat heroes”!

The Lincoln Pollinator Action Plan: “Planting the Way for Biodiversity and Climate Resilience” is a project developed by the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust in partnership with Evan Abramson of LandscapeInteractions and Dr. Robert Gegear, a professor of biology at UMASS Dartmouth. We propose to create a roadmap for biodiversity and climate resilience across the Town of Lincoln by rebuilding functionally diverse native ecosystems, through site-specific planting palettes and pollinator habitat designs that are based on scientific study. By incorporating multiple Case Study sites representing a wide array of land uses, landscape scenarios, ecological habitats, and aesthetics, Native Plant and Pollinator Toolkits will be developed that can be applied to sites across town, including on conservation, public, and private land, and beyond! Everyone is encouraged to participate along the way by helping to build a pollinator corridor across the town of Lincoln and through citizen science action.
