“Plants are not optional on this planet.”

I just love that quote.  It is from Dr. Douglas Tallamy’s book Bringing Nature Home, and it is something about which we should all give some thought.

Dr. Tallamy is on the minds of many of us at the Dahlem Center these days because next week, one week from today, in fact, August 11th, he will be in town to speak about the importance of the suburban garden in maintaining biodiveristy on this planet.

He will be speaking at the Cascades Manor House at 7:30 PM on the 11th.  This program is free and open to the public.

Those who might want to spend a little more time with Dr. Tallamy are invited to attend a dinner in his honor at the Manor House.  The dinner, which starts at 6:00 PM, is $50 and includes a meet-and-greet, a sit-down dinner, and preferred seating at the program.  If you’d like to attend the dinner, please call The Dahlem Center to register (517-782-3453).

Copies of Bringing Nature Home will be available for purchase and signing.

Here (tallamy 2) is a copy of the poster we have out in the community, with all the pertinent information on it.

Anyone who is interested in gardening and making a difference to native wildlife will not want to miss this program!  I hope to see you there!
