Renowned author and entomologist Doug Tallamy joins us via Zoom on Tuesday, Sept. 3, at 7 pm for a presentation on Nature Gardening and a Q&A with the audience.

This new presentation will inspire those who are familiar with Doug’s work as well as those who are hearing from him for the first time.


Author of Bringing Nature HomeThe Living Landscape, and New York Times best-seller Nature’s Best Hope, Doug has helped a generation of people understand the connection between insects, plants and the ecosystems they share. 

“Nearly every day I get emails from people who have read my books and heard my talks and yet still have questions about ecological landscaping,” says Doug.

“These are good, thoughtful questions about ecology and evolution, biodiversity, invasive species, insect declines, native and non-native plants, conservation and restoration, residential and city landscapes, urban issues, oak biology, keystone plants, Homegrown National Park, monarchs, supporting wildlife at home, and more.”

“In this talk I address as many of these queries as I can with hope that my answers will further motivate people to help restore ecosystem function where they live, work, play, worship, and farm.”
