This program is part of the 2nd annual Hot Springs Book Festival which takes place May 26th-27th at the Garland County Library.

Professor, author, ecologist, and conservationist Douglas Tallamy will join us for a virtual presentation entitled “Nature’s Best Hope” in which he will discuss his Homegrown National Park project and more. Homegrown National Park is a grassroots initiative to combat the current biodiversity crisis through the use of native plants.

Professor Tallamy is the T. A. Baker Professor of Agriculture in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, where he has authored 111 research publications and has taught insect-related courses for 41 years. He is the author of the New York Times best-selling book, Nature’s Best Hope, as well as The Nature of Oaks, for which he received the American Horticultural Society’s 2022 Book Award. Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities.

The Hot Springs Book Festival is hosted by the Garland County Library with support from the Literacy Council of Garland County and National Park College Adult Education.
