Bringing Nature Home by Doug Tallamy
Friday, October 21, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (CDT)
Northern Kane County Wild Ones will bring Doug Tallamy, author of “Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens,” to the Kimball Street Theater in the Rider Center at Elgin Academy, 350 Park St, Elgin, IL 60120 on October 21 at 7 pm for a free lecture.
Tallamy, who serves as chair of the Department of Entomology at the University of Delaware, will present a message about how suburban gardeners have the opportunity to protect biodiversity, and why a simple change in the way we look at our yards can make a crucial difference to wildlife.
Seating is limited and reservations are required by Oct 19. The overflow crowd will watch the program on closed-circuit TV. After the program, you can enjoy refreshments and meet Dr. Tallamy at our reception. He will be signing copies of his book, which will be available for purchase.
