Join us for a talk by Doug Tallamy, the author of The Nature of Oaks.

Let it Be an Oak

Thursday, March 17, 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Presented by Doug Tallamy, Ph.D., author, entomologist, and University of Delaware professor

Once we have decided to restore the ecological integrity of our suburban neighborhoods, we need to decide what plants to add to our properties. Oaks are superior trees for suburban restoration projects because of their many ecological and aesthetic attributes. Doug Tallamy will compare oak species to other popular shade trees in terms of their ability to support animal diversity, protect watersheds, sequester carbon dioxide, and restore lost plant communities.

Free of charge; registration is required.

This lecture is a part of our monthly Third Thursday Lecture Series. All lectures will be held virtually and a link will be emailed to registered participants prior to each program date.
