FILM SCREENING & DISCUSSION: “HIGH TIDE IN DORCHESTER” Saturday, May 9 7-9 p.m. | Riverwalk Ampitheater
Produced locally by Tom Horton, Sandy Cannon-Brown, and Dave Harp, “High Tide in Dorchester”, aims to “foster a conversation about climate change and related impacts of sea level rise and erosion, and leverage that conversation into action. The focus, Dorchester County, MD, is already experiencing the future that increasingly faces coastal areas worldwide. This lowlying county on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay is the fourth largest of Maryland’s 23 counties by land area, but it is destined to drop to the 14th largest by 2100 — or sooner — as waters rise and erosion worsens. Dorchester is the coal miner’s canary; ground zero for the Chesapeake Region.” Tom Horton will be present to introduce the film and provide discussion. Adult.
NATIVE PLANTS WITH GINNY ROSENKRANZ Thursday, May 7 2-3p.m.
Native plants are addition to your garden if you wish to attract native birds and butterflies. They are often considered low maintenance because they are drought and disease tolerant, which makes them a better fit for our sandy Eastern Shore soils. Moreover they also provide essential nectar sources for homegrown pollinators and edible berries for our native birds. Ginny Rosenkranz is a master gardner and educator for the University of Maryland Extension office for Dorchester, Somerset, Worcester, and Wicomico counties. Come and enjoy a virtual tour of a native plant garden and grab some ideas for yours! Adults.
