Saturday night viewing on September 30 open to all ages and will be shown on Shorebird Park Nature Center lawn. Don’t forget your snacks, blankets, and low-height chairs.
Come discover how plants we choose for our gardens impact migratory birds and pollinators like bees through a group discussion and a documentary, "Wings of Life."
The discussion — which will be outdoors on the Berkeley waterfront — will cover the benefits to wildlife (and water conservation) of using native plants, the role outdoor cats play on killing bird life, and the migrations of birds, butterflies, and bees.
After the discussion, watch the documentary on a large, portable 20-foot by 12-foot inflatable screen with premium audio-visual equipment designed for outdoor cinema.

This family discussion and documentary night is just one of a variety of events throughout the year organized by the City's Parks, Recreation and Waterfront Department, which offers dozens of camps, classes, and other activities for people of all ages and socioeconomic challenges. Get a glimpse of the Recreation Division's offerings through our online registration portal.
The focus on native plants is also something that the Parks department has prioritized – and which you can see on display as you drive to Shorebird Park. The Marina landscaping alongside the recently paved University Avenue entryway and roundabout is lined with native grasses, flowers and other plants.
Come use the group discussion and documentary on Saturday night to learn more about the impact of native plants on the lives of birds, butterflies, and other pollinators.
