Entomologist Doug Tallamy will speak via Zoom about how what we plant affects the ecosystem in profound ways. Recent headlines about global insect declines and 3 billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at supporting the plants and animals that sustain us.
To create landscapes that enhance local ecosystems rather than degrade them, we must add the native plant communities that sustain food webs, sequester carbon, maintain diverse native bee communities, and manage our watersheds. Tallamy’s approach to conservation empowers everyone to play a significant role in the future of the natural world.
