We are at a critical point of losing so many species from local ecosystems that their ability to produce the oxygen, clean water, flood control, pollination, pest control, carbon storage, etc, that is, the ecosystem services that sustain us, will become seriously compromised.
Those of you have been following us for some time will remember when we hosted Doug Tallamy back in 2009. Since then, he has gained quite a following, and interest in native plants has grown. He will be back in the Lehigh Valley for another presentation!
PLEASE NOTE DUE TO OVERWHELMING INTEREST IN THIS EVENT THE ORGANIZERS ARE REQUESTING THAT YOU REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT SO THEY KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE TO EXPECT. PLEASE REGISTER HERE:
