Sponsoring Organization: Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center
Author and Speaker: Dr. Doug Tallamy, professor of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware and author ofBringing Nature Home.
Using fascinating examples from his research on food webs and the relationships between plants and animals, Dr. Tallamy makes a compelling and powerful case for why using native plants in our yards and gardens is a key to restoring our dwindling biodiversity. By choosing native plants, anyone with access to a patch of earth, no matter how small, can contribute to conserving birds and other wildlife and to maintaining healthy ecosystems.
Come as early as 6:00 p.m. to browse in the National Zoo bookstore, meet the author and staff of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, and enjoy refreshments and a cash bar. The presentation begins at 7:00 p.m.
