About the speakers:
Vicki Mann: Vicki is Co-Founder of QuietGA, an organization that is working to reduce the use of gas-powered leaf blowers in favor of quieter, healthier and greener alternatives. After reading the book “Your Yard is Nature” by Leslie Inman and the teachings of Dr. Doug Tallamy, she realized there were changes she could be making in her own yard that would create a habitat where birds and pollinators would thrive. She incorporated their recommendations and is now passionate about spreading the word and encouraging others to take action.
Leslie Inman: Leslie Inman has been an avid native plant gardener for about 8 years. She first started gardening after hearing Dr. Doug Tallamy speak on the importance of native plants for birds and pollinator survival. She subsequently wrote and illustrated two children’s books about pollinators and their native host plants. She has a Facebook group called Pollinator Friendly Yards with 184,000 members and she also makes colorful graphics to explain the importance of native plant gardens as habitat.
