California Botanic Garden hosts a screening of “Saging the World” and conversation about white sage from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, November 12, at 1500 N. College Ave., Claremont.
Pre-film conversations and garden tours will commence at 4 p.m. with the film screening set for 5. A panel discussion with Nicholas Rocha, chair of the Gabrielino-Shoshone Tribal Council of Southern California, Tribal Secretary Kimberly Morales Johnson of the Gabrieleno Tongva and San Gabriel Band of Mission Indians, and Naomi Fraga, California Botanic Garden director of conservation programs, will follow about 20 minutes later.
“Saging the World,” a short documentary produced by Rose Ramirez, Deborah Small, and the California Native Plant Society, “spotlights the ecological and cultural issues intertwined with white sage, centering the voices of Native advocates who have long protected and cherished this plant,” read the event’s description.
