Native Plant Celebration


This program is now full.

with Dr. Doug Tallamy

Rescheduled for Saturday, August 22


“Because nearly 85% of the U.S. is privately owned, our private properties are an opportunity for long-term conservation if we design them to meet the needs of the life around us.”

Dr. Doug Tallamy


In his publication Bringing Nature Home, Dr. Tallamy made a case for the absolute importance of native plants in providing food for wildlife, connecting fragmented habitats and increasing the biological diversity around us. His newest publication, Nature’s Best Hope, outlines a vision for a grassroots approach to conservation and promotes an emotional connection to nature in our own backyards. 

A chance to win one of 10 great native plant resources is included with each webinar registration! The raffle will happen before the webinar so please register by August 20th to be included. Each winner will be contacted by phone or e-mail to choose their prize until all items are distributed. Check out what you could win:
