Posted

An evening with Doug Tallamy and Rick Darke, co-authors of “The Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity,” will be presented by the Manada Conservancy & the Appalachian Audubon Society from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, April 27, at Lower Dauphin High School, 201 S. Hanover St., Hummelstown.

This program is free and open to the public.

Tallamy and Darke are two of the nation’s leading authorities on the interplay of design, native plants and wildlife. Tallamy is professor and chairman of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware and author of the award-winning book, “Bringing Nature Home.” Darke is a landscape design consultant, author, lecturer, and photographer based in Pennsylvania who blends art, ecology and cultural geography in the creation and conservation of livable landscapes.

Doors open at 6, with environmental group displays. Darke will discuss “Layers” from 6:30 to 7. Tallamy will discuss “Relationships and Biology” from 7 to 8. From 8:15 to 9, Darke will discuss putting the information into practice. From 9 to 10, there will be a “Meet the Authors” session with a book signing.
