Sunday, October 1 at 1 PM
A ticketed event- limited seating
UNH Thompson School Conference Room
Cole Building Room 219
Presented by the Friends of Bedrock Gardens

 

Doug Tallamy, an engaging, funny, and inspiring speaker, is Professor and Chair of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. He is the author of the best seller book, “Bringing Nature Home,” a fascinating study of the trees, shrubs, and vines that feed the insects, birds, and other animals in the suburban garden. His talk will be "Making Insects: a Guide to Restoring the Little Things that Run the World." He says:

Insect populations have declined 45% globally since 1974. The most alarming part of this statistic is that we don’t seem to care! Yet a world without insects is a world without humans! So how do we build landscapes that support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators and parasitoids that run the ecosystems we depend on? 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.

Get your tickets as seating is limited. A reception follows the talk.
