Homeground ecology 101: Sara Stein to speak at ESA Meeting

On Sunday, August 5, 2001 at 5:00 pm Sara Stein, acclaimed natural science writer and gardener, will speak at the public plenary session of the Ecological Society of America's 86th Annual Meeting. This year's meeting will be held in Madison, Wisconsin August 5-10. In an address entitled, Homeground Ecology 101, Ms. Stein will discuss the importance of connecting ecology to everyday life.

Sara Stein has often been credited with heralding the backyard biodiversity movement of the last decade. A long-time author, Stein began writing about her own land management adventures in the early 1990s. While researching one of her books, she was surprised to realize that many of the once familiar inhabitants of her own property were no longer there. Her research into the reasons for the plants' and animals' absence inspired her well-known volume on the importance of local ecosystems, Noah's Garden. Her work has been compared to that of Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, and Henry Thoreau, and her books have often translated some of the toughest ecological science into plain language which has been embraced by non-scientists everywhere.

Ms. Stein's books include My Weeds, a gardener's botany, and Noah's Garden, which relates the ecological restoration of her property in suburban New York. A sequel, Planting Noah's Garden, describes her further pursuits in backyard ecology, and explains how to transform the traditional, lawn-bound home garden into natural habitat. Noah's Children: Restoring the Ecology of Childhood, published this June by Farrar, Strauss, & Giroux, explores a child's need to be connected with natural habitats, for children's own sake and for the sake of all of our futures.
