Friday, March 5, 2021
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
On Friday, March 5, Doug Tallamy will discuss how recent headlines about global insect declines, the impending extinction of one million species worldwide, and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable.
Tallamy will share simple steps that each of us can- and must- take to reverse declining biodiversity and explains why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.
Have you heard that using native plants in your yard helps improve the environment for you, your community and Virginia’s wildlife, but you are not sure where to start?
The Plant Virginia Natives campaign, of which the Virginia Native Plant Society is a partner, is pleased to be collaborating with other regional campaigns across the state to offer this series of 12 webinars – 6 this spring and 6 this fall for gardeners just learning that Virginia natives are the best choice!
The webinars will guide you through the why and how to turn your home garden into a beautiful retreat for your family and a native habitat for birds and other wildlife.
The series kicks-off on Friday, March 5, 2021 at 6:30 pm with an engaging presentation by Dr. Douglas Tallamy, renowned author of Nature’s Best Hope. Dr. Tallamy’s photography and message of hope is not to be missed!
Sign-up for all 12 webinars for just $10!
The Plant Virginia Natives Landscaping with Natives webinar series is being coordinated and funded, in part, by the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program through grants from the NOAA Office for Coastal Management to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
