Meet Entomologist Dr. Doug Tallamy
Making Insects: A guide to restoring the little things that run the world
Sunday, July 23, 3 – 5 pm

How do we build landscapes that support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators and parasitoids that run the ecosystems we depend on? Insect populations have declined 45% globally since 1974. Did you know that a world without insects is a world without humans! Professor and Chair of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware and author of “Bringing Nature Home,” Dr. Doug Tallamy will remind us of the many essential roles insects play, and describe the simple changes we must make in our landscapes and our attitudes to keep insects on the ground, in the air and yes, on our plants! Meet Dr. Tallamy for light refreshments after the talk.

Admission to this event is: $45 members, $60 non-members.
