[Tweeters] Reminder: WOS Monthly Meeting, Mon., Jan. 3, Planting with a Purpose: To Bring Birds Back!

meetings at wos.org meetings at wos.org
Thu Dec 30 15:00:53 PST 2021

We should all be alarmed at recently revealed declines in birds and insects, including pollinators and insects that feed many
birds.  However, we are not doomed to stand by helplessly and instead can take action.  Think globally, act locally!  
Our presenters at WOS’ Jan. 3 Monthly Meeting are Professor Doug Tallamy, entomologist and author of "Nature’s Best
Hope.”  Via video, Tallamy will show us steps we can take to create habitats in our own yards where birds, insects and other
wildlife thrive.  Learn about native “keystone plants” which support 90% of caterpillar species, mostly moths, upon which
birds depend.  Next, moth enthusiast David Droppers will reveal why moths are key (not those pretty butterflies!); he will
address "keystone plants" in Washington and will also navigate the selection of plants in the Pacific Northwest.  Lastly, WOS
member Neil Zimmerman will give a tour of the wildlife-friendly garden that he and Carleen have created and will also share
their "garden guidance."
