Project Native is a non-profit environmental education organization committed to growing native plants, maintaining a native butterfly house and wildlife sanctuary, and promoting stewardship of the local landscape.
For the past three years Project Native has hosted a successful day-long environmental film festival. This year, the festival will kick off Saturday, March 29th at 7pm at The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington with a special screening of Revolution, an award-winning film by Rob Stewart, director of Sharkwater.
On Sunday, March 30th Project Native will once again host a full day of environmental films at the Triplex Cinema in Great Barrington. As in years past, the day will start at 10:00 am with a film for children and families.
Here now to tell us more about the films and the goals and impact of the festival are: Karen Lyness LeBlanc, Project Native’s Education & Outreach Director; Barry Shapiro, a member of the board of trustees of Project Native and Chairman of the Board of the Dr. Robert C. and Tina Sohn Foundation; and Frank Lowenstein, one of the original founding directors of Project Native and currently the Deputy Director of the New England Forestry Foundation.
