VIRTUAL - Landscaping for Pollinators and Birds at Home with Desiree Narango

Tuesday, December 67:00—8:30 PMVirtual

This program is presented in partnership with the Massachusetts Pollinator Network and Lexington Living Landscapes.

Desiree Narango will speak about her research studying how residential landscapes and gardening practices influence wildlife habitats. The talk will focus on Dr. Narango’s recent work comparing how native and nonnative plant species vary in supporting species interactions. She will talk about the relationships between plants and insects, why insects matter to birds, and small steps you can take to improve and restore habitat for wildlife 'at home'.

Dr. Desiree Narango is a conservation scientist at the Vermont Center for Ecostudies in White River Junction, VT. Her research program focuses on understanding how global change impacts bird and insect populations and identifying biodiversity conservation solutions in human-dominated habitats. Desiree has a Ph.D. in Entomology and Wildlife Ecology from the University of Delaware, an M.S. in Natural Resources from The Ohio State University, and a B.S. in Environmental Biology from SUNY: ESF. She’s also an active naturalist and gardener who enjoys getting others excited about the natural world.

Co-sponsored by the Lexington Conservation Division. This program is also made possible by the generous donors to the Cary Library Foundation.
