Headlines about the decline of the natural world that serves as our life support have spurred homeowners across the country to take action by planting native species that will help reverse this trend. No plant will achieve this faster than one of North America’s 91 species of oaks. Oaks support more species of animals, sequester more carbon, protect watersheds and nourish soil communities better than any other plant genus on the continent. Dr. Doug Tallamy, author of The Nature of Oaks (2021), will discuss the many fascinating things happening to the oaks in his yard each month of the year. His hope is to inspire people to plant and protect these vital, majestic and life-giving trees. This event is made possible by a generous gift from The Echo Charitable Foundation.

Co-sponsored by the Essex County Ornithological Club (ECOC). A brief ECOC club meeting will take place from 7:30–7:45 pm. All are welcome to attend.
