Bringing Nature Home - Renewing Our World with Native Plants

07:00 pm - 05/16/2018

@ Audubon Society of the Everglades

West Palm Beach FL  33416-6914



Because our yards and gardens are essential parts of the terrestrial ecosystems that sustain humans and the life around us, it is essential that we keep them in working order.

Doug Tallamy will discuss the important ecological roles of the plants in our landscapes, emphasize the ecological, educational, physical, and emotional benefits of designing landscapes with these roles in mind, and explore the consequences of failing to do so. Managing landscapes in this crowded world carries both moral and ecological responsibilities that we can no longer ignore. One tiny change can save the ecosystem!

Doug Tallamy is currently professor and chair of the department of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. He has taught insect taxonomy, behavioral ecology, and other subjects at the University of 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.

This special event is being presented by Audubon Everglades, FAU Pine Jog Environmental Education Center, Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County, Atala Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association, and the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society.
