“We are Nature’s Best Hope” Webinar presents a new approach to conservation that starts in “your yard”

Author of New York Times’ best-selling book,“Nature’s Best Hope”, Doug Tallamy discusses the immense declines in plant and animal life caused by habitat loss—and how individuals can and must act to stop this loss—at a webinar at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13. Sponsored by Saint Barnabas Memorial Episcopal Church in Falmouth, the webinar shows how people can sustain the plants and animals that sustain them with simple changes to current landscape practices.

 “Recent headlines about global insect declines and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us,“ said Tallamy. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable—by taking simple steps to reverse declining biodiversity we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.”

The 60-minute webinar will be followed by a 30-minute question-and- answer period with Tallamy.
