Event Details

Noted University of Delaware Naturalist Doug Tallamy will share a special presentation at ANS on “Making Insects: A Guide to Restoring the Little Things that Run the World.”

Insect populations have declined 45% globally since 1974. The most alarming part of this statistic is that we don’t seem to care, despite the fact that a world without insects is a world without humans! So how do we build beautiful landscapes that support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators and parasitoids that run the ecosystems we depend on?

Professor Tallamy will remind us of the many essential roles insects play and describe the simple changes we must make in our landscapes and our attitudes to keep insects on the ground, in the air and, yes, on our plants.
