Nature’s Best hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard
February 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Presented by Douglas W. Tallamy, Ph.D.
Entertaining and nationally-renowned speaker, Dr. Tallamy will be in Houston
to speak about “Nature’s Best Hope” at the 2022 Thomas Horticulture Lecture
sponsored by The Garden Club of Houston.
Tallamy’s first book Bringing Nature Home changed the conversation about
gardening in America: wildlife populations are in decline because the native plants
they depend on are fast disappearing. His solution? Plant more natives. His second
book, the New York Times bestseller Nature’s Best Hope, urges homeowners to take
conservation into their own hands by creating home gardens that bridge the gaps
between parks and preserves in providing habitat for native species. His latest
“Start a new Habitat: Homegrown National Park” – homegrownnationalpark.org
Dr. Tallamy is an Honorary Member of The Garden Club of America and has received
the GCA’s Douglas Medal for Conservation. He is currently the Baker Professor of
Agriculture in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University
St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, Bagby Hall
