(AT) TMN Tuesdays

February 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

 

Now that spring is almost here, it’s time to start planning for your outdoor space and how you can make a difference for the betterment of native species, healthier ecosystems, and even wildlife corridors—all in your very own backyard! There’s no better teacher to get you started than Dr. Doug Tallamy, our February featured speaker for our #TMNTuesdays series! Join us next Tuesday on February 9th from 12pm – 1:30pm Central. *note that his session will extend an extra 30 minutes (at his request!) to allow for time for questions & answers!

Author Doug Tallamy

Registration is NOW OPEN; the link to reserve your spot can be found below. Every #TMNTuesday session is open to anyone and everyone, so invite any friends, family, or colleagues who can’t miss our featured speaker: Dr. Doug Tallamy.

February’s focus is all about “Nature’s Best Hope.” Particularly, how us humans are nature’s best hope by doing something as simple as turning your yard from an ecological desert into a thriving native oasis. Dr. Doug Tallamy will not only provide the information about his experiences, but he’ll also discuss practical tools that each of you can implement in your own backyards, whether you’re a Texas Master Naturalist or not. Interested in these grass-root approaches to conservation at the local level? Want to help native species by creating wildlife corridors in your own backyard? Then this #TMNTuesday seminar session is for you!

Doug Tallamy is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, where he has authored 103 research publications and has taught insect related courses for 40 years. 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 has received many awards for his work, and his new book ‘Nature’s Best Hope’ is a New York Times Best Seller.

Watching the live or recorded session will count as AT hours for our Master Naturalists—check in with your chapter’s VMS Admin on logging the time. Remember that you can view recordings of each session at txmn.tamu.edu/tmntuesdays after the event if you can’t make the live viewing.
