Armstrong is running an exemplary project in cooperation with The Nature Conservancy Louisiana to preserve a vanishing Louisiana ecosystem and restore the indigenous plants and animals.
This is important because America is losing its precious biodiversity from habitat destruction; both the variety and the quantity of living things are being diminished. A rich biodiversity is more resilient to adverse changes and is the basis of our life support system. Therefore, this event is relevant for all who own or manage land in NELA.
We're very grateful to Johnny for his valuable project and outreach, and also to Library Director, Stephanie Antley Hermmann for opening this wonderful venue to us. Yet again she's proving Louisiana public libraries' essential contribution to our NELA community.
There'll be an opportunity for Q&A and book signing and an appeal to join the Louisiana Master Naturalists Northeast group.
