Expedition L.A.: Saging the World Screening
Expedition L.A., a program series based at LA’s Central Library, features activities focused on bringing you closer to the beautiful nature of Los Angeles.
Saging the World spotlights the ecological and cultural issues intertwined with white sage, centering the voices of Native advocates who have long protected and cherished this plant.
The film was followed by a panel discussion and a special acoustic performance by talented plant nerds and native plant activists, Sage Against the Machine. Attendees took home a white sage plant from Artemisia Nursery learned about native plants from Theodore Payne Foundation, learned about Saving Monarch Butterflies with Project Monarch LA and enjoyed botanical refreshments from Teapot Gardens.
Saging the World was created by Rose Ramirez and Deborah Small in partnership with the California Native Plant Society to foster awareness and inspire action for white sage. For more information on the film and ways to support white sage, visit cnps.org/sagingtheworld.
This program was made possible by funding provided by the State of California, administered by the California State Library.
