I KNOW, SOME OF YOU ARE ON TO THIS ALREADY, but in case you’re not: By clicking this link (equivalent to clicking the word “slideshows” in the “Topics” in the far-left column of every page on the blog) you can browse through all the slideshows I’ve posted in two-plus years of blogging. King of fun, huh (especially if you’re someone who likes show-don’t-tell)? I love posting my photos taken in the yard here this way; what fun it has been for me. Hope you enjoy them, too. :)
FROM THE WEEKLY PODCAST
how conservation starts in your yard, with doug tallamy
‘NATURE’S BEST HOPE’ is the title of University of Delaware professor Doug Tallamy’s new book, and the subtitle reads like this: “A New Approach to Conservation That Starts in Your Yard.” In other words, you and I are nature’s best hope. Our actions count, and they add up to counteract a fragmented landscape and other challenges to the survival of so many critically important native creatures and the greater environment we all share.
Doug Tallamy’s 2007 book, “Bringing Nature Home,” has been for many of us a wake-up call into the entire subject of the unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife, and now with more than a decade of additional research insights, he goes further.
