Homegrown National Park: Virtual Lecture with Doug Tallamy
Tuesday, October 24, 2023, 7pm
Our parks, preserves, and remaining wildlands – no matter how grand in scale – are too small and separated from one another to sustain the native trees, plants, insects and animals on which our ecosystems depend. We can fix this problem by practicing conservation outside of wildlands. Thus, the concept for Homegrown National Park: a national challenge to create diverse ecosystems in our yards, communities, and surrounding lands by reducing lawn, planting native, and removing invasives. We are at a critical point where we are losing so many native plant and animal species that our natural life support is in jeopardy. If many people make small changes, we can restore healthy ecological networks.
Doug Tallamy is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, where he has authored 111 research publications and has taught insect-related courses for 42 years.
