Effects of Habitat Corridors on Biodiversity

Environment CFC’s 2015 programs continue the theme of building “Habitat Corridors” using native plants and excluding pesticides, particularly neonicotinoids, but everyone with a yard will find this fascinating. Dr. Jeffrey D. Holland of Purdue University will discuss how insects can be diverse even in small yards, especially with the presence of native plants and the absence of insecticides. For instance, goldenrod is important for local insects, with plants full of interesting insects in the autumn. Using beautiful slides, this program explores the diverse insects and their roles in residential properties. The program begins at 10:00 am on Saturday morning but please come at 9:30 for coffee, conversation and handouts. Free parking is conveniently located behind the building. The program is free to members; $10 for non-members. Please RSVP to 847-382-SAVE (7283) or to our email address at cfc@citizensforconservation.org. To ensure proper registration, please provide your name, phone number and program name. Saturday, January 10, 2015, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM. Barrington Village Hall 200 S. Hough Street Barrington.
