Video Viewing and Panel Discussion, “What’s the Rush? The Solution to the Biodiversity Crisis,” from Homegrown National Park

September 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

Bring your friends and neighbors! Join us during Climate Prep Week to view Doug Tallamy’s “What’s the Rush?” video, and find out what you can do in your own yard to regenerate biodiversity. Tallamy is Professor of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware and the author of Bringing Nature Home; Nature’s Best Hope; and The Nature of Oaks. His grassroots organization, Homegrown National Park®, is a non-profit dedicated to galvanizing individuals and communities to regenerate biodiversity and ecosystem function by planting native plants, with an initial goal of 20 million acres of native plantings across the United States.

The video will be followed by a chat with panelists who are already taking steps to shrink lawns, remove invasive species, add native plants, avoid insecticides, herbicides and fertilizers, reduce nighttime light pollution and more. There will be opportunities to ask questions, gather resources and learn how you can get involved!
