The Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity
An evening with Doug Tallamy and Rick Darke, co-authors of The Living Landscape:
Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity presented by Manada Conservancy & the Appalachian Audubon Society
The richness of life in any landscape is linked to the richness of its layers. Using chickadees and other wildlife as guides we will explore how layers of native plants evolved with local wildlife. Join us as we learn to enhance our ability to see these layers and to create them in our own landscapes. Manada Conservancy is privileged to present two of the nation’s leading authorities on the interplay of design, native plants and wildlife.
Doug Tallamy is Professor and Chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware and author of the award winning book, “Bringing Nature Home.” He is a much sought after speaker and has inspired many with his compelling message on the importance of gardening with native plants in order to provide vital habitat to sustain local wildlife. www.timberpress.com/author/doug_tallamy/1308
