Climate-Wise Landscaping: why a bird-friendly landscape may also be good for our only planet. This presentation is based on topics from the book “Climate-Wise Landscaping: Practical Actions for a Sustainable Future,” which shares 100’s of actions that property owners or land managers (homeowners, communities, and municipalities) can take right now:

1) to help the landscape survive climate change,
2) to help wildlife survive climate change, and
3) to help to mitigate climate change.

The book was written by Ginny Stibolt, a botanist in Florida and Sue Reed, a landscape architect in Massachusetts, with a foreword by Doug Tallamy.
