Specifically, this talk will focus on her work comparing native and non-native plant species and plant preferences by butterflies, bees and birds. Narango will describe the ecological relationships between plants and insects, why insects matter to birds and steps you can take to improve wildlife habitat at home. She will also share resources to find more information about nature-friendly gardening and participating in community-driven science.

She has a Ph.D. in entomology and wildlife ecology from the University of Delaware, an M.S. in natural resources from the Ohio State University and a B.S. in Environmental Biology from SUNY: ESF.
