OK we won’t actually have Doug Tallamy LIVE and in person, but we will hear from him. Wild Ones – Arrowhead just purchased the DVD we’ve all been waiting for – “The Vital New Role of the Suburban/Urban Garden.” This DVD contains Doug Tallamy’s most recent presentations filmed with a live audience during a Wild Ones Fox Valley Area conference. We will show Part 1: “The Value of Having Native Plants in our Yards” (approx. 1 hr). A short discussion will follow. Tallamy is the award winning author of Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens.
Another time we will view Part 2: “Creating Healthy, Biodiverse Neighborhood Corridors” (1-1/4 hr plus Q&A)
