Trees Forever Hosting 25 Events to Mark 25 Years With First Event March 11

Dear friends,

Please include this information in your public calendars and announcements.

Trees Forever is marking a milestone this year as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. Throughout the year, we are hosting 25 special events to highlight the accomplishments we have achieved together in roadside plantings, improving water quality, providing more shade for communities, habitat and so much more.

Our first event takes place March 11, as we host a free night of learning and inspiration on the important role of trees and native plants for pollinators. University of Delaware professor, Dr. Doug Tallamy, author of "Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants," will discuss the important ecological roles of the plants in our landscapes and how you can garden with these roles in mind.

Dr. Tallamy is the chair of the Entomology and Wildlife Ecology department, where he has been studying insects and their role in the environment for over 20 years. Among his research areas are the impact of alien plants on native ecosystems; the interactions between plants and insects and the conservation of biodiversity. This event is free and no registration is required.

* What: Bringing Nature Home with Dr. Doug Tallamy

* When: Tuesday, March 11, from 7-8:30 p.m.

* Where: Kirkwood Community College, Ballantyne Auditorium, Cedar Rapids

* Cost: Free

* Other: Books will be sold on discount, available for Dr. Tallamy to sign.

Bring a copy of Dr. Tallamy's book or purchase one the night of the event to get it signed! To learn more about this great event visit www.treesforever.org/pollinators
