Conservation Starts at Home Set
Website exclusive 3-book set.
Author Douglas W. Tallamy awakens readers to an urgent situtation: wildlife populations are in decline because the native plants they depend on are fast disappearing. His solution? Plant more natives. In his books Bringing Nature Home and Nature's Best Hope, Tallamy outlines a vision for a grassroots approach to conservation that begins in the backyard, with a practical, effective, and easy blueprint for taking action to preserve our precious wildlife.
In The Nature of Oaks, Tallamy turns his advocacy to one of the most important species of the plant kingdom—the mighty oak tree. He explores what is going on in oak trees month by month, highlighting the seasonal cycles of life, death, and renewal. From woodpeckers who collect and store hundreds of acorns for sustenance to the beauty of jewel caterpillars, Tallamy illuminates and celebrates the wonders that occur right in our own backyards, and shares practical advice about how to plant and care for an oak, along with information about the best oak species for your area.
