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.
