Sponsoring Organization: Cheverly Green Infrastructure Committee

Speaker: Doug Tallamy

Douglas Tallamy, a Professor of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at University of Delaware, is widely recognized for his ability to clearly explain complex ecological relationships among plants, insects and other animals. His award-winning book "Bringing Nature Home" is must reading for anyone interested in gardening, wildlife and in preserving sustainable environments. 

Dr. Tallamy will speak on the interrelations of plants and animals and what we can do to preserve the services nature is providing us by using native plants in landscaping. Following his recommendations to encourage native flora can have far reaching benefits for our entire ecosystems which in turn provide us with clean air, water, food and healthy surroundings.
