Upcoming Talks on Climate, Native Plants

Michael Lemonick: Climate Change From a Journalist's Perspective, Tuesday, April 28, 7pm, DR Greenway Johnson Center off Rosedale Road. Michael was one of the first journalists to write about climate change, and has worked in Princeton at Climate Central for many years.

Doug Tallamy: The Garden Club of Princeton is teaming with the Friends of Princeton Open Space and the public library to bring entomologist Doug Tallamy to town on Monday, May 4. Best known for his book, Bringing Nature Home, he and his students at U. of Delaware have provided much of the data showing the tremendous importance of native plant species in the diets of insects. The insects, in turn, provide critical nutrition for birds as they feed their young a high-protein diet in the spring. A previous post about how that knowledge can inform your choice of plants for the yard can be found here. Tallamy spoke some years back at DR Greenway. The library is hosting the May 4 talk at 7pm.
