How to Practice Conservation in Your Backyard with Doug Tallamy
545 Long Lane
Gettysburg, PA

As a New York Times best-seller, Doug Tallamy has published four books all related to what people can do at their own homes to help with environmental conservation. Mr. Tallamy’s first book, Bringing Nature Home, awakened thousands of readers to an urgent situation: wildlife populations are in decline because the native plants they depend on are fast disappearing. His solution? Plant more natives.


Tallamy outlines his vision for a grassroots approach to conservation. He shows how homeowners everywhere can turn their yards into conservation corridors that provide wildlife habitats. Because this approach relies on the initiatives of private individuals, it is immune from the whims of government policy. Even more important, it’s practical, effective, and easy – you walk away with specific suggestions you can incorporate into your own yard.


All Adams County community members with an interest in environmental conservation are invited to hear from a popular activist within the conservation community.


This event begins at 11:30 a.m. and features local non-profit environmental organizations and clubs available to speak with community members about their environmental efforts in Adams County.


Light food and drinks are served during this time for attendees.


Doug Tallamy presents his talk at 1 p.m., followed by a Q&A session.
