A series of talks and videos inspired by Doug Tallamy, entomologist and author of Natures Best Hope, Bringing Nature Home, and co-creator of Homegrown National Park campaign. He says that lawns are deserts in the eyes of our pollinators which are essential to life on Earth as we know it. Please join us in shrinking lawns and building habitat for pollinators in our community.
