RURAL BUSINESS ADVICE DAY – HEREFORDSHIRE RURAL HUB
HEREFORDSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST
Herefordshire WildlifeTrust is the largest membership-based wildlife organisation in the area, dedicated to inspiring people about wildlife, acting as a wildlife champion, creating wildlife havens and encouraging sustainable living.
The Trust covers the county of Herefordshire and works closely with neighbouring Wildlife Trusts in England and Wales. The Trust is supported by over 3000 local members and manages 54 nature reserves.
Their website is here and they have lots of events every month.
Nick Baker will be giving Herefordshire Wildlife Trust’s annual lecture this autumn. His talk is entitled Building a Naturalist and is part autobiography, part hard hitting call to action
Best known as a TV wildlife presenter on shows such as AutumnWatch Unsprung, Nick Baker, is also an author and one of the UK’s foremost naturalists. Building a Naturalist represents the development of a life-long biophile. Nick will touch on subjects as broad as how keeping caterpillars in a jam jar led to working with Britain’s rarest butterfly, how playing with grass-snakes helped him tackle a cobra, the similarities between badgers and a 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 rewilding a young generation and in doing so – save the world!
Herefordshire Wildlife Trust’s Anastasia Calder commented: “Nick is a really inspirational presenter and his enthusiasm for the natural world is surely unsurpassed. We are delighted he has agreed to come to speak for us and have no doubt that it will be both a thought-provoking and entertaining evening!”
Nick’s has recently published his tenth book, ReWild: The Art of Returning to Nature ( available to purchase on the night.) A mix of personal experience, sound advice, and some of the science behind our ‘wild’ senses, ReWild is written with passion, humour, boundless knowledge and a lifelong love of science and nature. It will inspire humans of all ages to “strip life back to the essentials” from time to time and truly connect with the natural world around us. The result, to once again discover the great outdoors and all that it beholds.
The talk will be held at the Kindle Centre in Hereford, beginning at 7.45 pm, on Wednesday 18th October. It follows Herefordshire Wildlife Trust’s Annual General Meeting which runs from 6pm to 7pm, though the bar will be open from 6.30pm for those coming just for Nick’s talk. Tickets cost £12 and are available through the Trust’s website: www.herefordshirewt.org/NickBaker or by calling 01432 356872. All funds raised during the evening will be invested in wildlife conservation and the sustainable management of traditional orchards in Herefordshire.
