   Creating Living Landscapes
   with Doug Tallamy


Doug Tallamy will present a talk - "Creating Living Landscapes." 
Dr. Tallamy is the author of Bringing Nature Home.

Tallamy will tell us that we will not keep our ecosystems running 
if we do not save the creatures that run them. To save local biodiversity, 
we must increase the amount and diversity of native plants in our neighborhood and corporate landscapes. But how
can we create socially acceptable landscapes using native plants? 
Many people are concerned that natives are more prone to insect 
damage, are messy and not attractive, will attract vermin, and cannot be used formally. Tallamy will dispel these misconceptions and suggest ways to make your property a showpiece without losing its ecological function in the local ecosystem.

The program also includes presentation of the 2018 Habitat Hero Awards to exemplary 
sustainable gardens in the Tennessee Valley.
