An Evening with Doug Tallamy, Author of Bringing Nature Home
Thursday, September 14, 20177:30 PM
Dunwoody Nature Center
Atlanta Audubon is excited to welcome author and native plant advocate Doug Tallamy to kick off this year’s Wildlife Sanctuary Tour. Tallamy will present his book, Bringing Nature Home, on Thursday, September 14, at 7:30 PM at Dunwoody Nature Center. Many bird populations in the U.S. are in steep decline, in part because our gardens and managed landscapes occupy more space than natural areas and we have not designed them with birds in mind. To do that, we can no longer view plants only as ornaments but must consider all of their roles when selecting them for our landscapes. Tallamy will discuss what birds need from our landscapes to breed successfully, and the important roles native plants play in maintaining food webs vital to birds. He will emphasize the benefits of designing landscapes with these roles in mind, and explore the consequences of failing to do so. Tickets for the Doug Tallamy presentation, the Sanctuary Tour, and combination Tallamy/Tour Tickets are now available by clicking here.
