October 25: Nature’s Best Hope With Doug Tallamy, Ph.D.
Recent headlines about global insect declines and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs are at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us.
Please join us virtually or in person as Doug Tallamy, Ph.D., explains how we can create landscapes that enhance local ecosystems rather than degrade them and how this Homegrown National Park will provide vital corridors connecting the few natural areas that remain.
When: Tuesday, October 25. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for light refreshments. The lecture begins at 6:30 p.m.
Where: In person at Stroud Water Research Center, 970 Spencer Rd., Avondale, PA 19311, or online via Zoom.
Cost: Free, thanks to our sponsor Lael Farm, but you must RSVP.
