Johnstone Lecture– Bringing Nature Home –

February 3, 2021, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Johnstone Lecture

 Free

This year’s speaker for the event will be Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home. Doug will discuss simple steps that each of us can- and must- take to reverse declining biodiversity. 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 and that as environmental stewards we are nature’s best hope.

 

The Johnstone Lecture, sponsored by FRIENDS of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, was named in honor of the State Botanical Garden’s first director, Dr. Francis E. Johnstone, Jr.
