Wild Ones of Northern Kane County presents Doug Tallamy via Zoom
October 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Tallamy is well-known among people and organizations that work to provide a place for birds, bees and butterflies — and us — to thrive. Through his research and teaching, he has uncovered critical relationships among plants and creatures; through his writing and speaking, he has brought those important new understandings to other scientists and the public.
His new book, Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation That Starts in Your Yard, elaborates his idea of creating a Homegrown National Park on our private properties. He proposes converting half of each lawn into food for the birds and insects that support a complex food web — and makes it clear why we should care.
Noted scientist, E.O. Wilson, has called Tallamy “one of the most original and persuasive present-day authors on conservation.” Come meet him and see what you think.
