America’s Lost Landscape: The Tall Grass Prairie

Spend an afternoon viewing a beautifully crafted and inspiring DVD on the history, science, and poetry that is the tall grass prairie.  Learn why so many people devote themselves to preserving and expanding this invaluable ecosystem.  Exploited for generations, we are now beginning to appreciate its complexity and sustainability in a time of monocultures and over-dependence upon chemicals.  Enjoy a lively discussion and a hot cup of coffee following the 60 min. film, which will be shown at 2 pm on Friday, March 9, at the historic Riverside Library, located at 1 Burlington Road. Call 708-354-5512 for more information.  A three-dollar donation is suggested.
