Prince William Wildflower Society Lecture By Author Doug Tallamy

Contributed by Prince William Wildflower Society

Prince William Wildflower Society with the support of the Prince William Master Gardeners are sponsoring a lecture by Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home  for which he won the Silver Medal from the Garden Writer’s Association.

The speaker will discuss the important ecological roles of the plants in our landscapes, emphasize the benefits of designing gardens with these roles in mind, and explore the consequences of failing to do so.

Douglas W. Tallamy is currently professor and chair of the department of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware.  You may also be interested in the author’s own Web site, www.PlantANative.com.
