UConn Metanoia for The Environment & UConn Ecology and Evolutionary Biology present

Making Insects: A Guide to Restoring the Little Things That Run the World Dr. Doug Tallamy, University of Delaware

Saturday, March 31, 10 am – Biology/Physics Building, Room 130, UConn, Storrs, CT No registration required – FREE Adults and children ages 8 and above. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Insect populations have declined 45% globally since 1974. The most alarming part of this statistic is that we don’t seem to care, despite the fact that a world without insects is a world without humans! So how do we build attractive landscapes that support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators and parasitoids that run the ecosystems we depend on? Dr. Tallamy will remind us of the many essential roles insects play, and describe the simple changes we must make in our landscapes and our attitudes to keep insects on the ground, in the air and yes, on our plants.
