VINS is pleased to present professor Doug Tallamy for a presentation on the declining biodiversity of our planet and the significant role each of us plays in the future of our natural world.

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 the pressing issues we face. The good news is that none of this is inevitable. Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can- and must- take starting in our own backyard and how we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.
