2020 Spring Lecture Series #2 – Nature’s Best Hope: Creating a Vibrant Ecosystem
March 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$8.00
On March 12, Doug Tallamy, a leading voice for growing native plants in our yards and gardens, will present “Nature’s Best Hope: Creating a Vibrant Ecosystem.” A professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, Tallamy will offer simple steps each of us can—and must—take to reverse declining biodiversity. He is author of the widely acclaimed Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens and (with co-author Rick Darke) The Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity in the Home Garden. His new book, Nature’s Best Hope, will be published by Timber Press in February. This lecture will be in Lane Auditorium in the Albemarle County Office Building at 401 McIntire Road. (Please note this is a different location from the other three lectures in the series.)
