Healing the Earth, One Landscape at a Time

Creating Living Landscapes
with Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home

Friday, September 7, 2018, 7:00pm
University of Tennessee University Center Auditorium
642 E. 5th Street, Chattanooga TN

We will not keep our ecosystems running if we do not save the creatures that run them. 
To save local biodiversity, we must increase the amount and diversity of native
plants in our neighborhood and corporate landscapes. But how can we create
socially acceptable landscapes using native plants? Many people are concerned that
natives are more prone to insect damage, are messy and not attractive, will attract vermin, 
and cannot be used formally. Tallamy will dispel these misconceptions and suggest ways
to make your property a showpiece without losing its ecological function in the local ecosystem.

The program also includes presentation of the 2018 Habitat Hero Awards to exemplary 
sustainable gardens in the Tennessee Valley.

All tickets $10.
