The Hanover College Environmental Stewardship committiee, in partnership with Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge, will screen the documentary film “The Guardians” Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. in Hanover College’s Classic Hall, Room 102.
A meditation on the balance between humans and nature, “The Guardians” covers the lives of the threatened Monarch butterfly with an indigenous community fighting to restore the forest that was nearly destroyed. The film will be followed by a short panel discussion of the film and the plight of Monarchs and those who act as their guardians.
Admission is free and this event will be open to the public. The Jefferson County Pollinator Action Group, Oak Heritage Conservancy and the Pollinator Partnership also support this event.
