The Linn Landowner Forum features the importance of native habitat and how private landowners can restore and manage it. The forum brings together land owners and experts, along with vendors who can help with habitat projects. Attendees can participate in a full afternoon of educational sessions.
This year’s forum will feature Doug Tallamy, professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. Tallamy is a popular and engaging speaker who celebrates the importance of native plants as critical components of a diverse and healthy ecosystem. He’s the author of 88 research publications and several books, including "Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants" and "The Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity in the Home Garden."
Online registration for the event will open in July at www.monarchresearch.org.
