Virtual Event: A Guide to Restoring the Little Things That Run the World

June 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join Dr. Doug Tallamy, entomologist and author of Nature’s Best Hope, for this lively discussion. A recent UN report predicts that as many as 1 million species will disappear from planet earth because of human activities. Many of these are insects and nearly all species at risk rely on insects. Insects have already declined 45% since 1974. How do we create beautiful landscapes brimming with life; landscapes that support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators and parasitoids that run the ecosystems on which we depend? Tallamy will remind us of the many essential roles insects play, and describe the simple changes we must make to keep insects on the ground, in the air and yes, on our plants. Also learn about the Native Plant Society of Oregon: High Desert Chapter, the Bend Pollinator Pathway, and how you can get involved. What can we plant and what actions can we take to support native pollinators in Central Oregon?

This virtual event is FREE but registration is required.
