In his presentation, “A Chickadee’s Guide to Gardening”, Doug will tell us how to observe and appreciate the interactions that occur in the landscape.   He will share ideas for training the eye and things to look for, such as chickadees catching seeds.  These observations provide the inspiration and strategy for making and maintaining a truly living landscape – gardens that are full of life and vital to both human needs and the needs of regional wildlife communities.

Douglas W. Tallamy is Professor and Chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.  Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways that insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities.

Doug will bring a couple of his books to sell, including his popular Bringing Nature Home and his new book, the Living Landscape.
