educational speaker doug tallamyHomegrown National Park: Building Plant Networks for Life Doug Tallamy, Ph.D. University of Delaware Our parks, preserves, and remaining wildlands—no matter how grand in scale—are too small and separated from one another to sustain the native trees, plants, insects, and animals on which our ecosystems depend. We can fix this problem by practicing conservation outside of wildlands, where we live, work, shop, and farm. Thus, the concept for Homegrown National Park: a national challenge to create diverse ecosystems in our yards, communities, and surrounding lands by reducing lawn, planting natives, and removing invasives.
