Author urges gardeners to form one big ‘national park’

This undated photo provided by Timber Press shows monarch butterflies in the University of Delaware Botanical Garden in Newark, Del., and is featured in the Douglas Tallamy book “Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard.” Tallamy, a professor at the University of Delaware, is urging everyone _ homeowners and renters, in cities, suburbs and rural areas _ to pitch in. The wildlife ecologist and author doesn’t just want you to embrace native plants in your yard or on your patio, he wants everyone to see their patches of land as part of a giant quilt. A “Homegrown National Park.’’ Tallamy says a massive project like that can go a long way toward nurturing and protecting birds and pollinators. (Douglas Tallamy/Timber Press via AP)
