“Bringing Nature Home”

      The message Doug Tallamy presents in this dvd version of a live talk he gave to a Wild Ones conference is to preserve biodiversity. We can all contribute to making sustainable landscapes by growing the native plants that are essential to our local food chains and food webs. The ecosystem services provided by natural species benefits all species on our planet. After the movie refreshments will be served and a Mid-Mitten Chapter business meeting will include planning meetings and field trips for the remainder of 2014 and meeting new members.

This meeting is held at the Chippewa Nature Center’s Visitors’ Center, 400 S. Badour, Midland, Mi, 6:30-8:00 pm. Open to the public.

Emerald Ash Borer Update

      The Emerald Ash Borer is a non-native beetle arom Asia that was accidentally introduced to Detroit in 2002. It probably arrived on wood packing material in cargo ships from its native Asia. Because ash trees in North America had no immunity to this insect, many trees have become infested and died. State and federal agencies have been trying to prevent the spread of EAB through quarantines, control efforts, and research on its life cycle and natural enemies. Since 2002 it has killed more than 30 million ash trees in SE Michigan alone. Alicia Wallace, coordinator of Bay County’s EAB monitoring program will present a current update on this insect, and suggest native trees that could be planted to replace dead ash trees. This meeting is open to the public.

This meeting is at Chippewa Nature Center,400 S. Badour, Midland, Michigan, from 6:30-8:30 pm
