Keynote Presenter: Doug Tallamy

“Nature’s Best Hope”

Recent headlines about global insect declines, the impending extinction of one million species worldwide, and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable. Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can–and must–take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.
