As Dr. Doug Tallamy, nationally recognized entomologist at University of Delaware and influential author of “Nature’s best hope” points out homeowners everywhere can turn their yards into conservation corridors that provide wildlife habitats. Butterflies, birds, and other wildlife are in decline in large part due to habitat loss, invasive species spread, and pesticides. Our panelists will share resources that can help you transform your landscape into a life-eco-system for wildlife and people alike.
In this webinar :
-Learn about natives, non-natives and invasives and how native plants support pollinators and food webs far better than introduced ornamentals.
-Learn how you can certify your backyard as a “Wildlife Certified Habitat” through Delaware Nature Society.
-Learn about the National Wildlife Federation’s new congregation certification program called “Sacred Grounds,” which can support you in creating a wildlife habitat at your house of worship and in actively linking your faith practices to environmental stewardship.
-Learn about how the Delaware Center for Horticulture uses native plants in public landscapes.
