Webinar ‘Native Plants, Climate Change, and Your Backyard’

May 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

With the warmer weather and spring blooms, those of us with yards dream of new ways to beautify them. In this webinar on Wednesday, May 19 from 7-8:00pm, speaker Dr. Doug Tallamy encourages us to think alternatively about how we can make our yards more ecologically vibrant with native plants.


Native plants are a powerful tool to help fight pollution, floods, record-breaking heat waves, sea-level rise, and mass extinction of species. Native plants have evolved to sustain the diversity of animals we need to maintain our ecosystems. Only native plants can support the insects that provide an essential food source for the hundreds of species of birds, bats, lizards, bears, foxes and other creatures that depend on them.


You can learn more about Dr. Tallamy’s work at his site, Homegrown National Park, then be sure to register soon for this important webinar. This talk is sponsored by MetroWest Climate Solutions.
