Following Herefordshire Wildlife Trust’s AGM, naturalist and TV presenter Nick Baker will give a talk which will be part autobiography and part a hard hitting call to action. Building a naturalist is a journey through the development of a life-long biophile. Expect a journey that spans the last 44 years and zings all over the planet – connecting via experiences – familiar UK habitats to stories from more exotic shores. Nick will touch on subjects as broad as how keeping caterpillars in a jam jar lead to working with Britain’s rarest butterfly, how playing with grass-snakes helped Nick tackle a cobra, the similarities between Badgers and Black Rhino and how the most endangered species in the world is a child playing free in nature. This talk explores why this is and suggests how we go about rewinding a young generation and in doing so – save the world.
Doors open at 5.30pm for those members attending the Trust’s AGM which will run from 6pm to 7pm. Orchard Origins will be running a bar throughout the evening from 6.30pm onwards, with all profits from the evening invested in wildlife conservation and the sustainable management of traditional orchards in Herefordshire. The talk will start at 7.45pm.
