Warrenville event keeps it natural
January 24, 2013 by Mark
The ‘EAC Winter Movie Series – Bringing Home Nature’ will feature Steve Windsor from the ‘Wild Ones’, who will guide a discussion about Doug Tallamy’s book ‘Bringing Home Nature’ this evening.
The book is about “native” gardening and its benefits on a property. Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to spread the word about this natural gardening lecture and film evening to people throughout the region.
Tallamy is a renowned professor, as well as the chair of the Entomology and Wildlife Ecology Department for the University of Delaware in Newark, New Jersey. Some of the work featured can be found on his website and includes Herbaceous Plants that feed butterflies and moths, woody plants, gardening for life changes, using the space on a property wisely, and wildlife preserves – a last chance for sustaining animals and plants that were once commonplace. There is also information on the role of suburban landscapes, the perils of planting non-native plants, and the benefits of biodiversity. For anyone interested in learning more about gardening and how it affects the planet, as well as their own property, this movie should be quite enlightening.
Admission is free and all are welcome to come out, learn, and discuss. The event will be happening this evening, January 24, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Hudetz Family Meeting Room in Warrenville, Illinois.
