    Banning DDT: How Citizen Activists in Wisconsin Led the Way, by Bill Berry

    Banning DDT: How Citizen Activists in Wisconsin Led the Way, by Bill Berry

    Media $25.00 $15.00
    Rated 0 out of 5

    In 1968, DDT went on trial in Madison, Wisconsin. In Banning DDT: How Citizen Activists in Wisconsin Led the Way, Bill Berry details how the citizens, scientists, reporters, and traditional conservationists drew attention to the harmful effects of “the miracle pesticide” DDT, which was being used to control Dutch elm disease.

    Berry tells of the hunters and fishers, bird-watchers, and garden-club ladies like Lorrie Otto, who dropped off twenty-eight dead robins at the Bayside village offices. He tells of university professors and scientists like Joseph Hickey, a professor and researcher in the Department of Wildlife Management at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, who wept about the suppression of some of his early DDT research. And he tells of activists like Senator Gaylord Nelson and members of the state’s Citizens Natural Resources who rallied for the cause.

    Today, virtually every reference to the history of DDT mentions the impact of Wisconsin’s battles. Banning DDT is a compelling story of how citizen activism, science, and law merged in Wisconsin’s DDT battles to forge a new way to accomplish public policy.

  • Bringing Nature Home, by Douglas W. Tallamy

    Bringing Nature Home, by Douglas W. Tallamy

    Media $22.00
    Rated 0 out of 5
    As habitat destruction accelerates, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. There is an important step toward reversing this alarming trend: everyone with access to a patch of earth can make a significant contribution toward sustaining biodiversity.

    There is an unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife — native insects cannot, or will not, eat alien plants. When native plants disappear, insects disappear, impoverishing the food source for birds and other animals. In many areas, habitat destruction is so extensive that local wildlife is in crisis and headed toward extinction.

    Bringing Nature Home has sparked a national conversation about the link between healthy local ecosystems and human well-being. By acting on Doug Tallamy’s practical recommendations, everyone can make a difference.

    The perfect antidote to the belief that nature happens somewhere else. If you have a backyard, this book is for you — get outside and learn about the wildlife around you, and then do something to make a haven for species at risk.
