Audubon of Greenwich welcomes Doug Tallamy

Curious about how native plant and wildlife interact? Guest speaker and renowned expert Doug Tallamy will be holding court at the Audubon for an evening lecture from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 31 and a native plant walk on Sunday, June 1 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Mr. Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home, is a professor and chair of the Department of Entomology & Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. He has written more than 65 articles that detail how insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities.

Bringing Nature Home makes the case that it isn’t too late to save ecological communities, and that we all have a significant role and responsibility in the process. By gardening with native plants — no matter where you live or how small or large your space is — you can help sustain wildlife. In his talk, Mr. Tallamy will take about how to do this and provide new insights into the wildlife surrounding us.

Saturday’s lecture will feature a reception, book signing and presentation. On Sunday, the walk will begin at the main building and venture outside onto the meadow trails. The event is $15 per person, for each day. Space is limited and reservations are recommended. RSVP to [email protected] or Jeff at 203-869-5272, ext. 239.

To reserve copies of Bringing Nature Home prior to the event, contact Gigi at 203-869-5272, ext. 221 or [email protected]
