Doug Tallamy, nationally known ecologist, author, and professor specializing in wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware, will speak on the critical importance of our own yards and gardens to support the larger ecosystems that sustain us. He will teach us about the fascinating, unexpected and complex relationships between animals and plants that are essential to life as we know it on the planet, focusing on the specialized plant-animal food relationships that determine the stability and complexity of local food webs; how traditional suburban landscape practices can degrade the environment; and how we can use our landscapes effectively to reverse this process by creating welcoming habitat in our own yards and connecting the isolated habitat fragments around us.
