On Tuesday, April 13 at 7 p.m. the Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with New York Times bestselling author Douglas W. Tallamy, author of The Nature of Oaks: The Rich Ecology of Our Most Essential Native Trees. The Nature of Oaks is dedicated to the mighty oak tree, one of the most important species of the plant kingdom. Kirkus Reviews calls the book “An affectionate yet scientifically rich look at an essential ingredient of the environment.”
Oaks sustain a complex and fascinating web of wildlife. The Nature of Oaks reveals 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. He also shares practical advice about how to plant and care for an oak, along with information about the best oak species for your area.
Tallamy is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, where he has taught insect-related courses for 40 years. His most recent book with Timber Press, Nature’s Best Hope, is a New York Times Best Seller.
Copies of The Nature of Oaks will be available for purchase courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Registration for this program is required and a valid email address is required at time of registration. Participants will receive an email invitation to attend the program, hosted on Zoom, a day before the program begins.
