Video preview: Dr. Desiree Narango talks about her April 21 Zoom presentation, “The birds, the bees, the flowers and the trees”
April 17, 2021 — Insects eat plants, birds eat insects, birds eat plants — New England’s natural areas are a fascinating and complex world.
The keystones are the plants.
In her upcoming presentation in Young, Gifted, and Wild About Birds, Dr. Desiree Narango will talk about which species can attract those birds to your yard or nature preserve.
Not surprisingly, native plants are essential.
She will tell you how to choose which trees and shrubs to plant.
She’ll also go deep into the amazing biodiversity you’ll find in your own yard: Butterflies, moths, caterpillars, bees, birds, all illustrated with wonderful photos.
Earth Day Backyard Bioblitz participants, take note — you’ll want to tune in for this.
Dr. Narango is the David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellow Postdoctoral Researcher at UMass Amherst. In March 2021, she was named an Early Career Fellow of the Ecological Society of America.
