Lecture by Douglas Tallemy, Author of “Bringing Nature Home”
March 21, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Because our yards and gardens are essential parts of the terrestrial ecosystems that sustain humans and the life around us, it is essential that we keep them in working order. Tallamy will discuss the important ecological roles of the plants in our landscapes, emphasize the ecological, educational, physical and emotional benefits of designing landscapes with these roles in mind, and explore the consequences of failing to do so. Managing landscapes in this crowded world carries both moral and ecological responsibilities that we can no longer ignore.
Doug Tallamy is the author of Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens which was awarded the 2008 Silver Medal by the Garden Writers’ Association. His book The Living Landscape, co-authored with Rick Darke, was published in 2014. Tallamy is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.
