Virtual Lecture with Doug Tallamy--Sponsored by Sycamore Land Trust


Nature's Best Hope

If you missed the Dr. Tallamy virtual lecture on January 27th, 2022, then you are in luck because you now have a chance to see his amazing presentation on youtube.  You can click here to view.

Douglas Tallamy is the T.A.Baker Professor of Agriculture in the Department of Entomology & Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.

Recent headlines about global insect and bird population declines are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that also sustain us. Such losses are not a desirable option but the good news is that none of this is inevitable. In the video, Dr. Tallamy  discusses simple steps that each of us can- and must- take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we are nature’s best hope.

Sycamore Land Trust
"Sponsor a Preserve" Program


EAS Sponsors Eagle Slough Natural Area

The Sycamore Land Trust (SLT) initiated a "Sponsor a Preserve" program for 2021. This campaign is designed to recognize supporters, individuals or organizations, that are committed to advancing the important stewardship work of SLT.  Each year, and particularly this past year, many people visit SLT preserves.

We are happy to announce to all our members that the Evansville Audubon Society (EAS) has sponsored one of the SLT preserves as part of their 2021 campaign: Eagle Slough Natural Area.  Eagle Slough is near and dear to our members who regularly visit and have volunteered to help maintain and preserve this important bird and wildlife habitat.
