Giving public lectures to special interest groups in and around Northamptonshire is always a pleasure as the audiences are usually very receptive. Just been through my diary and realised that I’m giving five such lectures over the next few months, on pollinators, conservation, ecosystem services, and so on:
8th March – “Bees for dinner? The importance of pollinators in a changing world” – Long Buckby Women’s Institute – open to all and not just women!
22nd March – “A city without trees is like a bird without feathers” – Litchborough Gardening Club [title is slightly wrong on that link…]
5th April 2 – “Darwin’s Unrequited Isle: a personal natural history of Tenerife” – Friends of Linford Lakes (Milton Keynes)
27th June – “Pollinator diversity” – Chalfonts Beekeepers (Buckinghamshire)
12th July – “Plants & pollinators – more than just honey bees” – Cancer Research UK ladies lunch club fundraiser at Wellingborough Golf Club
Some of these will certainly be open to guests if you’re not a member and want to come along and hear what I have to say.
Happy to discuss giving a talk to other groups, please do get in touch, though I’m probably not available until after the summer as I’m also giving a keynote lecture at the PopBio conference in Germany in May and a couple of short talks at the International Botanical Congress in China in July.
