Nature’s Best Hope – Keynote Speaker Douglas W. Tallamy
Toward Harmony With Nature • 25th Anniversary Conference
Saturday, January 29, 2022 • Oshkosh Convention Center • 8:00 am – 4:15 pm
In-person and virtually, Wild Ones Fox Valley Area Chapter is celebrating its 25th Toward Harmony with Nature all-day conference on natural landscapes, native plants, and biodiversity this January 29, 2022. Nature’s Best Hope, featuring Dr. Doug Tallamy is a practical blueprint for a new approach to conservation that starts in our yards. By adopting a new relationship with nature, we can save the natural world – and thus ourselves. What our speakers have to say should be of interest to anyone – homeowners, gardeners, landscapers, teachers, ecologists, municipal leaders, wildlife enthusiasts, nursery owners, etc.
