Evening Dinner & Lecture - Restoring Nature’s Relationships at Home with Doug Tallamy
Ladew Gardens
Join us for a special dinner & lecture featuring Doug Tallamy. Ticket price includes garden admission, dinner, and lecture. Specialized relationships between animals and plants are the norm in nature. It is specialized relationships that provide our birds with insects and berries, that disperse our bloodroot seeds, that pollinate our goldenrod, and so on. Native plants, in particular, provide wildlife with their basic needs better than non-native plants can. Tallamy will explain the importance of these relationships and how we can use our home landscapes to improve wildlife habitat and make our landscapes living ecosystems again. Doug Tallamy has been a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware for the past 36 years. He is an award-winning researcher, speaker and author, who focuses on better understanding the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. He is well known for his books Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens and The Living Landscape, co-authored with Rick Darke, which will be for sale.
