Nature's Best Hope by Doug Tallamy

Sep 30, 2020, 5:30 pm

Join Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter and Utah Humanities Book Festival for a virtual lecture and discussion with Doug Tallamy, author of Nature's Best Hope; A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard and professor and chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.

Recent headlines about global insect declines, the impending extinction of one million species worldwide, 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. 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. Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can- and must- take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.

This event is free and will take place via Zoom webinar. Doug's book Nature's Best Hope is available to purchase from the Swaner EcoCenter. Please contact Hunter at or 435-797-8943 to order a copy.
