Environmental Book Club reading Tallamy

Feb 14, 2018

Appleton — Appleton Library and Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District’s January environmental book club was a hit, and readers are on to the next in preparation for two meet-ups in March.

To be discussed will be Doug Tallamy’s “Bringing Nature Home: How you can sustain wildlife with native plants,” which became an instant classic when it was published in 2007. The book club will meet Wednesdays, March 7 and 21, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at Deer Foot Farm Café, 1221 Union Road/Route 131. Tallamy is professor and chairman of the department of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware, where he conducts research on how the interactions between insects and plants determine the diversity of animal communities. He is a great writer and photographer, and his book is a valuable resource for novice and advanced gardeners and naturalists alike.

Coffee, tea and homemade refreshments are available for purchase at the café. Participants are asked to read the first half of the book before the first gathering. For who do not wish to purchase the book, limited copies are available to borrow from Appleton Library (785-5656) or Knox-Lincoln SWCD in Rockport.

There is no fee for the program; however, for planning purposes, participants are asked to pre-register by calling Knox-Lincoln SWCD at 596-2040 or emailing rebecca@knox-lincoln.org.
