Thursday, March 7
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Please join us on Thursday, March 7th, from 7 to 8 pm at the Darien Library Community Room. We will discuss ways in which we can increase the insect population. This valuable population has been on a steady decline since 1974, but we will discuss ways in which we can make changes in our environment to help this population thrive. We’ll talk about how we can build beautiful landscapes that will support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators, and parasitoids that run the ecosystem on which we depend.
Presenter Doug Tallamy, renowned author and professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware,will remind us of the many essential roles insects play, and describe the simple changes we can make in our landscapes and our attitudes to keep insects on the ground, in the air, and on our plants.
