Alice Roberts – Tamed: Ten Species that Changed our World

Friday 9th February

Event Type: Celebrity Lecture | Wildlife Talk | Broxtowe

How do you tame wildness? For thousands of years our ancestors existed in a world where they depended on wild plants and animals. They were hunter-gatherers - consummate survival experts navigating the opportunities and threats the world offered. Then a revolution happened: we started to domesticate wild species and they became crucial to our own survival and success. Alice Roberts is an anthropologist, writer and broadcaster, and is currently Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University of Birmingham. She has presented several landmark BBC series including The Incredible Human Journey, Origins of Us, Coast, and The Celts. Her recent book on evolutionary biology, The Incredible Unlikeliness of Being, was shortlisted for the Wellcome Trust Book Prize in 2015. Join her at the Pearson Centre, Beeston, Nottingham for an evening talk, Q&A and book signing. 7.30-10.00pm, doors open 6.30pm. £18.95, refreshments available.

A Peek behind The Curtain - Wildlife in No Man’s Land

Monday 12th February

Event Type: Wildlife Talk | Broxtowe

Join Beeston Wildlife Group for a talk by Tim Sexton. For over 40 years the Iron Curtain divided Europe. Along stretches, the physical barrier was set 5km in from a country’s actual border, creating a no man’s land – free from human inhabitants. With little disturbance, wildlife thrived. When the Iron Curtain fell many of these areas became protected as national parks. Tim looks at the wildlife of one such area - Podyji National Park in the Czech Republic. 7.30–9.30pm at Trent Vale Infants School, Beeston Rylands, Nottingham, NG9 1LP. Adults £2, children £1.
Contact: Nigel Slater 0115 916 6518 or Martin Butler 07847 015 151 (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
