Dr. Douglas Tallamy’s new book, Nature’s Best Hope, outlines that nature cannot be saved, nor can it function effectively, if it just exists in parks and preserves. You, the landowner, can give nature some room on your property as a small part of a functioning whole. In this 5-part on-line Zoom lecture series, learn how to put Dr. Tallamy’s words and ideas into practice on your property.  The five evening lectures you can participate online in real-time will focus on 1) The modern yard and how local ecosystems work, 2) Native vs Non-native plants in the ecosystem, 3) Good plant choices for your property that will make an impact right away, 4) Designing your home-grown natural area, and 5) Actions and lifestyle choices to become a good steward of nature and wildlife.  Instructors are Joe Sebastiani and Lori Athey.

 

Agenda:

April 28 – 5:30-7:30pm – Background and introduction.  The modern yard…a sterile landscape.  How local ecosystems work.

 

May 5 – 5:30-7:30pm – Native vs Non-native invasive plants in the ecosystem.

 

May 12 – 5:30-7:30pm – Good plant choice alternatives for your property that will make an immediate impact on biodiversity.  Lori’s top 30.  Land management techniques.

 

May 19 – 5:30-7:30pm – Designing your home-grown natural area – a Landscape Architect’s approach.

 

May 26 – 5:30-7:30pm – Actions and lifestyle choices for becoming a good steward to nature, wildlife, and biodiversity on your property.

 

Note: After registration, you will receive Zoom meeting invitations for the lectures.  A separate field trip will be advertised once the public is allowed to meet in groups for educational purposes.
