Nature's Best Hope
Renowned entomologist and ecologist Douglas Tallamy teamed up with Wright Library in April 2021 for a community read and initiative to support the Miami Valley ecosystem. Tallamy’s book Nature’s Best Hope and his Homegrown National Park movement offer a hopeful and achievable plan for urban and suburban dwellers to help save the planet.
