November 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Join us for this presentation by Douglas W. Tallamy for an online seminar on how we can support the critical biodiversity of our planet on the land by planting native plants and removing invasive plants where our homes, congregations, other organizations, and businesses are located.

Doug is the NY Times bestselling author of Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard and Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens.

After a 1-hour presentation by Doug, we’ll have 30 minutes for Q&A.  The event is free, but registration is required.  A donation to help cover the costs of the webinar is optional.


Homegrown National Park™ is a term coined by Doug and is the key to our call-to-action:

“Our National Parks, no matter how grand in scale are too small and separated from one another to preserve species to the levels needed. Thus, the concept for Homegrown National Park, a bottom-up call-to-action to restore habitat where we live and work, and to a lesser extent where we farm and graze, extending national parks to our yards and communities.”

This perspective is guiding the stewardship of the land where the Riverdale-Yonkers Society is located.
