Nature’s Best Hope
presented by Doug Tallamy, T. A. Baker Professor of Agriculture, Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.
Hosted by Multifaith Alliance of Climate Stewards, Hood College and Envision Frederick County
Recent headlines about global biodiversity declines and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us.
The good news is that none of this is inevitable. Doug Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can and must take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.
