Saint Andrew Group
for Ecology (SAGE)
As members of Saint Andrew Christian Church, believing that the earth is God's and all life is sacred, it is with humility, awe, and wonder we seek ways to live in harmony with and as faithful stewards of God's creation.
"The Earth is God's and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for God has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers."

"Bringing Nature Home”
A free lecture by author
Saturday, March 21, 7 pm;
Kansas Union, fifth floor
Because our yards and gardens are essential parts of the terrestrial ecosystems that sustain humans and the
life around us, it is essential that we keep them in working order. Dr. Tallamy will discuss the important
ecological roles of the plants in our landscapes, emphasize the ecological, educational, physical and emotional
benefits of designing landscapes with these roles in mind, and explore the consequences of failing to do so.
Doug Tallamy is the author of Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens which
was awarded the 2008 Silver Medal by the Garden Writers' Association. His book The Living Landscape, co-
authored with Rick Darke, was published in 2014. Tallamy is a professor in the Department of Entomology and
Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.
SAGE Library Update
The SAGE library has grown to 95 books which have been donated for your edification and enjoyment. Please sign the clipboard when you take a book and when you return it, put the card back into the book and place it on the shelf.
A must read which has been donated is Oil and Honey by Bill McKibben, well known environmentalist. This is an elegant and deeply inspiring front-row seat in the global battle against fossil companies and intensely local life. It is beautifully written.
