LOCAL>> The Nature of Oaks with Douglas Tallamy
Author turns his conservation advocacy to one of the most important plant species
Author Doug Tallamy has changed the conversation about gardening in America – from homeowners’ conservation, in his New York Times bestseller Nature’s Best Hope, to his latest book, The Nature of Oaks where he is now turning his advocacy to one of the most important species of the plant kingdom—the mighty oak tree.
Oaks sustain a complex and fascinating web of wildlife. The Nature of Oaks reveals what is going on in oak trees month by month, highlighting the seasonal cycles of life, death, and renewal including the woodpeckers who collect and store hundreds of acorns for sustenance to the beauty of jewel caterpillars.
In this virtual presentation, he also shares practical advice about how to plant and care for an oak, along with information about the best oak species for your area.
