Nature's Best Hope

Renowned entomologist and ecologist Douglas Tallamy teamed up with Wright Library in April 2021 for a community read and initiative to support the Miami Valley ecosystem. Tallamy’s book Nature’s Best Hope and his Homegrown National Park movement offer a hopeful and achievable plan for urban and suburban dwellers to help save the planet. About Nature's Best Hope and Douglas Tallamy's Home Grown National Park Movement
