Student Naturalist Beth Grant will speak at South Georgia Growing Local 2014:
In his book Bringing Nature Home, Dr. Doug Tallamy explains how everyone who loves the wonders of the natural world can contribute to the survival of our native birds, butterflies, and other treasures by providing the native plants needed to support them. Beth Grant has recently obtained permission from Dr. Tallamy to present his slideshow on his findings. By acting on Dr. Tallamy’s practical recommendations, you can make a difference for bio-diversity while bringing endlessly fascinating wildlife to your home. Handouts will be provided. Copies of Bringing Nature Home and Dr. Gil Nelson’s Best Native Plants for Southern Gardens will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to Birdsong Nature Center.
Beth is a retired mental health counselor and educator. She is an active volunteer with many nature groups, including Friends of Lost Creek Forest, Birdsong Nature Center, Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve, Florida Native Plant Society, and others.
