Let It Be An Oak!
Join us for Breakfast, Green Networking, and a FREE talk by GCA Medalist Doug Tallamy about the importance of planting and maintaining native trees like oaks, shagbark hickories, elms and other wildlife friendly trees in our community.
Once we have decided to restore the ecological integrity of our suburban neighborhoods and open spaces we need to decide what plants to add to our properties. Oaks are superior trees for suburban restoration projects because of their many ecological and aesthetic attributes. Tallamy will compare oak species and other native trees to invasive shade trees in terms of their ability to support animal diversity, protect watersheds, sequester carbon dioxide, and restore lost plant communities.Co-sponsored by Friends of Rye Sustainability Committee. Made possible through a grant from Con Edison
