Bringing Nature Home - Speaker: Doug Tallamy

Dr. 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.

1.5 CNLP credits


Creating Living Landscapes - Speaker: Doug Tallamy

Once you have decided to share your property with other species, how do you go about doing that? Can we bring life into urban areas? How do you reconstruct complex food webs in your yard? How can we get more plants into your landscape without it looking wild and messy? Will living landscapes be more prone to insect damage and vermin? Are they higher maintenance? Tallamy will answer these questions and more to help you make your yard a fascinating part of nature.

What Would Doug Do (in your yard)? -
Speaker: Sally Cunningham

We have been inspired and convinced by Dr. Doug Tallamy to "bring nature home". But in your own WNY yard, wherever you're starting from, what can you do? Which projects and changes come first? What plants should you remove and add--and where can you get them? Sally Cunningham (CNLP, author, garden expert) will address the practical concerns and Buffalo area realities of our ecologically meaningful goals.
