Greenbelt Land Trust Conservation Book Club
Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard
Join Greenbelt and Benton Soil and Water Conservation District as we will be reading and discussing the latest book from Douglas Tallamy, author of “Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants”. “Nature’s Best Hope” expands on the concepts of his previous work and shows how homeowners everywhere can turn their yards into conservation corridors that provide wildlife habitats.
Co-hosts Matt Benotsch, Greenbelt’s Outreach Coordinator and a dedicated native plant gardener, and Heath Kierstead, BSWCD’s Communications and Community Engagement Manager and coordinator of their upcoming native plant sales will lead the book discussion. We will also explore the basics of native landscaping in the Willamette Valley and discuss plant selection, maintenance and the wildlife you can attract and provide habitat for in your yard.
We will be meeting via Zoom.
