On November 7, 2021 from 2:00-3:00 pm, The Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture hosts this online presentation by Douglas W. Tallamy for an online seminar on how we can support the critical biodiversity of our planet on the land by planting native plants and removing invasive plants where our homes, congregations, other organizations, and businesses are located.

Doug is the NY Times bestselling author of Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard and Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens.

After a 1-hour presentation by Doug, we’ll have 30 minutes for Q&A.  The event is free, but registration is required.  A donation to help cover the costs of the webinar is optional.

Long Term Planning

The Riverdale Nature Preservancy is working with the NYC City Council through Community Board 8 to design long term development plans which will protect the future of our historic and natural resources.  Through prudent planning, we can balance communal needs for affordable housing and access to green spaces for all Bronxites with strategic protection of the unique architecture and sensitive ecological features our community enjoys.  We are working with the City Council to fine tune Speaker Corey Johnson's recent proposal, Planning Together.
