NATURE’S BEST HOPE WITH DOUG TALLAMY

May 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

EVENT PART OF THE LAKE FRIENDLY LIVING AWARENESS WEEK, MAY 2-8, 2021:

Recent headlines about global insect 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.  Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable. 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.

This event is co-sponsored by the Chautauqua Lake Conservancy and the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Association.

Douglas W. Tallamy is Professor and Chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities.
