Doug Tallamy and The Nature of Oaks
September 29 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Renowned insect ecologist Douglas Tallamy will discuss his newest book, The Nature of Oaks: The Rich Ecology of Our Most Essential Native Trees. Oaks are long lived and support more life forms than any other North American genus. From woodpeckers who collect and store hundreds of acorns for sustenance to birds, bears, insects and spiders. Oak leaf litter supports creatures who reside in it, and deters invasive plants and soil erosion.Tallamy will compare oaks to other popular tree species and the oak tree’s superior ability to support animal diversity and its substantial environmental contributions.
