Evenings with Experts

Cultivating Wildlife Conservation with Native Plants

Desiree Narango, David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellow, Univ. of Massachusetts Amherst


  • May 26 | 7:00 - 8:30pm

Where: Online (By Zoom Meeting)

Fee: Free to All

Restoring habitat in urban and suburban spaces is crucial to stemming declines in biodiversity. To be successful, we need evidence-based guidelines to inform our landscaping decisions. Desiree Narango will describe her research showing that native plants are essential to sustaining biodiversity, and discuss findings that illuminate the proportion of natives needed, and best species to use, if we are to create thriving wildlife habitat at home.
