Lecture – Gardening with Native Plants to Sustain Wildlife, Ptery Iris

Friday, March 13, 10:00 AM at OLLI-Lewes

You’ve heard it said: “Think Globally, Act Locally!” Nowhere is more local than your own yard. You can start right away, right at home, to make a difference in combatting climate change and wildlife habitat loss. This lecture, based on the seminal work of UD professor of entomology and wildlife ecology Doug Tallamy, will address the importance of gardening with native trees, shrubs, and flowers, to provide food and habitat for wildlife and sustain healthy ecosystems. You can help restore and support wildlife in this area where nature is fast disappearing. You can make your yard a place that supports not only adult birds but their babies as well. You can be a part of the solution!

This lecture is free but requires online registration.
