Environmental Book Discussion: BRINGING NATURE HOME

Wed, February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Join members of the Earthplace naturalist team in discussing Douglas Tallamy's BRINGING NATURE HOME.

“A fascinating study of the trees, shrubs, and vines that feed the insects, birds, and other animals in the suburban garden.” —The New York Times

As development and habitat destruction accelerate, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. In BRINGING NATURE HOME, Douglas W. Tallamy reveals the unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife—native insects cannot, or will not, eat alien plants. When native plants disappear, the insects disappear, impoverishing the food source for birds and other animals.

But there is an important and simple step we can all take to help reverse this alarming trend: everyone with access to a patch of earth can make a significant contribution toward sustaining biodiversity by simply choosing native plants. By acting on Douglas Tallamy's practical and achievable recommendations, we can all make a difference.

This is a virtual event, please register to participate. Copies of the book are available at the Westport Library.
