Sold Out! “Nature’s Best Hope” with Author Dr. Doug Tallamy

This event is sold out. Please check our calendar for more educational programming this fall!

Join us for a seated lecture at the Rushton Conservation Center with author and conservationist Doug Tallamy. This evening will begin at 5:30 pm with light refreshments, followed by an introduction on Homeowner Habitat from WCT Stewardship staff and an inspirational lecture by Doug Tallamy on his latest book: “Nature’s Best Hope.” Doug will end the evening with a book signing, so don’t forget to bring your Tallamy books! When you purchase your tickets, you can preorder your own copy of “Nature’s Best Hope,” which will be available for pickup at the event. 

Douglas W. Tallamy’s first book, Bringing Nature Home, awakened thousands of readers to an urgent situation: wildlife populations are in decline because the native plants they depend on are fast disappearing. His solution? Plant more natives. In this new book, Tallamy takes the next step and outlines his vision for a grassroots approach to conservation. Nature’s Best Hope shows how homeowners everywhere can turn their yards into conservation corridors that provide wildlife habitats. Because this approach relies on the initiatives of private individuals, it is immune from the whims of government policy. Even more important, it’s practical, effective, and easy—you will walk away with specific suggestions you can incorporate into your own yard.

If you’re concerned about doing something good for the environment, Nature’s Best Hope is the blueprint you need. By acting now, you can help preserve our precious wildlife—and the planet—for future generations.

Douglas Tallamy is an American entomologist, ecologist and conservationist. He is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. He has written and co-authored several books, as well as many papers. His new website Homegrown National Park is his grassroots call-to-action to regenerate biodiversity.
