Nature’s Best Hope: A Conversation with Doug Tallamy

Tuesday, June 15, 7:00 p.m.
ZOOM Presentation!
Recent headlines about global insect declines and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable. Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can — and must — take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.

The Artist’s View – Contrasting Expressions of Nature

Wednesday, June 16, 6:00 p.m.

Long Island’s natural environment has been the muse for countless artists who created beautiful art inspired by the land and sea. That inspiration continues today with many local artists who use a variety of diverse methods and natural materials to create their work. Join us for this moderated panel featuring Scott Bluedorn, Anne Sherwood Pundyk, and Cindy Pease Roe to learn more about how the beauty of Long Island’s environment informs and inspires their creativity. Our moderator is Kathryn Szoka, local photographer and co-owner of Canio’s Books.
