Hometown Habitat is narrated by Dr. Douglas Tallamy, UDel bug expert and an international leader of the native plants movement. Weaving together environmental science and real-life experiences, Hometown Habitat is a story told by people who experienced the challenges and rewards of transforming their outdoor spaces to be more resilient and welcoming to all forms of life.
