Join Land Ethic Vermont for a talk by Dr. Doug Tallamy, who will share a call to action that looks to revolutionize the way people landscape to benefit wildlife and communities.

Recent headlines about global insect declines and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. To create landscapes that enhance local ecosystems rather than degrade them, we must remove the invasives on our property and add the native plant communities that sustain food webs, sequester carbon, maintain diverse native bee communities, and manage our watersheds.  

 If we do this in half of the area now in lawn, we can create Homegrown National Park, a network of viable habitats throughout the U.S. that will provide vital corridors connecting the few natural areas that remain. This approach to conservation empowers everyone to play a significant role in the future of the natural world. 

This event is perfect for anyone who is interested in exploring what humans can do to create a healthy, resilient planet. Please pre-register today!
