Thursday, March 22 2018 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Dear Community Supporter,
The Lancaster County Conservancy, Harvey’s Gardens, and our community partners are excited to offer our members and friends this opportunity to join us for an exciting lecture featuring University of Delaware professor Doug Tallamy, author of the book Bringing Nature Home and coauthor of The Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity in the Home Garden.
We are pleased to host this event on Thursday, March 22, 2017 at 2 pm for municipal/legislative officials and at 7 pm for a public lecture at Franklin and Marshall College.
Tallamy shares, “Over 800 plant and animal species are rare, threatened, or endangered in Pennsylvania and 150 have already disappeared entirely. Many of those that haven’t suffered local extinction are now too rare to perform their role in their ecosystem.”
Please join us to bring awareness of ongoing efforts in our region to protect and preserve local biological diversity through our dynamic partnership and community collaboration. Check back for information. Please note the inclement date is Tuesday, March 27th.
