What’s the Dirt: Movie and Dessert at Crow’s Nest Preserve

Did you know one teaspoon of dirt contains billions of living organisms? Dirt! The Movie (Bullfrog Films, 2009) highlights the humble but critical role of soil in providing us clean water, food, and shelter. Ordinary dirt is a source of medicine, beauty, and culture, and sustains communities in amazing, seemingly invisible ways.

Narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, Dirt! The Movie will change how you view and value dirt, encouraging appreciation of the important role of trees in nourishing and replenishing the earth.

Natural Lands Trust’s Crow’s Nest Preserve encompasses nearly 700 acres of dirt!  With expansive fields, forests, and creek habitat, the preserve’s natural resources sustain vital communities below ground and above. Crow’s Nest Preserve is part of the Hopewell Big Woods, one of the largest areas of protected land in the region, including French Creek State Park and Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site.

Bring a potluck dessert to share after the movie.
