Nature’s Best Hope

Nature’s Best Hope

A free lecture by Doug Tallamy on Feb 5 at 7:00pm, presented by Grow Native Massachusetts at the Harvard Science Center.

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Grow Native Massachusetts is proud to present our 2020 Evenings with Experts lecture series! These talks are free and open to all.

Join us for this talk with Doug Tallamy, Professor of Entomology and Wildlife Biology at the University of Delaware.

Recent headlines about global insect declines, the impending extinction of one million species worldwide, 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. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our present-day standard of living on Planet Earth. 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 to explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.

Doug Tallamy is the nationally acclaimed author of Bringing Nature Home, and the co-author of The Living Landscape. In 2013, he was awarded the Garden Club of America’s Margaret Douglas Medal for Conservation Education. His newest book, Nature’s Best Hope, is being released the day before this event, and copies may be purchased at the lecture.

Thank you to our community partners— the Cambridge Public Library, Mount Auburn Cemetery and the Boston Society of Landscape Architects— for their support of this series.

Continuing education credits will be available.
