April 22, Earth Day!
Our meeting on this fourth Monday will celebrate the world’s 49th (!) annual Earth Day celebration. Woohoo! And we have booked Doug Tallamy, a renowned area author and speaker, whose topic will be, “Creating Living Landscapes.” He is currently professor and chair of the department of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware, where he has taught insect taxonomy, behavioral ecology, and other subjects. Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. Doug won the Silver Medal from the Garden Writer’s Association for his book, Bringing Nature Home.
To help cover the cost of the speaker, a $10.00 donation to the Arden Club is suggested.
