The Sustainability of Liberty Hyde Bailey- Bailey Conference
The Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum held its first Fall Conference at South Haven High School on September 22, 2018 to help bring Liberty Hyde Bailey’s horticultural work – begun more than 100 years ago – into the 21st century.
According to LHBM Chair Anne Long, “We’re here to celebrate the foundational work created by Liberty Hyde Bailey in the late 19th and 20th century and how it has evolved into a vibrant focus of action today.”
Keynote speaker Dr. Douglas Tallamy, College of Agriculture & Natural Resources at the University of Delaware – Professor of Entomology, environmentalist, conservationist, preservationist and author of more than 80 books on these subjects – spoke to a crowd of 160-plus environmental enthusiasts at the conference to drive home the importance of not only preserving our natural environment, but restoring it to ultimately sustain human life.
