Hometown Habitat features renowned entomologist Dr. Douglas
Tallamy, whose research, books and lectures on the use of non-native plants in
landscaping, sound the alarm about habitat and species loss. Tallamy provides
the narrative thread that challenges the notion that humans are here and nature
is someplace else. Inspiring stories of community commitment to conservation
landscaping illustrate Tallamy’s vision by showing how humans and nature can
co-exist with mutual benefits. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Edith Wallace, Ph.D., professor emerita of biology at William Paterson University. Dr. Wallace spoke recently at the New Jersey Native Plant Society annual meeting on native plants found in the two dozen public gardens of the Garden State Gardens Consortium. She also gives talks on the native plants of DeKorte Park in the Hackensack Meadowlands and has led walks there.
