Simon King OBE to talk at Hagge Woods Trust Spring Lecture 2019
Tuesday 19 March 2019 from 18.30 to 21.00
Hagge Woods Trust inaugural Spring Lecture will be given by Simon King OBE, Naturalist, Conservationist, Author, Artist and Broadcaster. The talk is being held in aid of Hagge Woods Trust, the pioneering charity taking practical action for nature and people by creating wood-meadows and inspiring others to plant and look after these exceptional habitats.
Known to millions as a face of Springwatch and Big Cat Diary, naturalist and broadcaster Simon King is the real-life Dr Doolittle. Simon will take you on a journey of discovery, showing you how you too can talk to the animals in your neighbourhood and get first class views of wildlife as a result. Learn to grunt like a fallow deer, hoot like an owl and cuckoo like a cuckoo amongst many others. Simon’s extensive practical knowledge of field-craft and wildlife watching techniques open the door to the wild world, whether it be in your back yard or beyond. Discover stories of filming creatures as diverse as killer whales (for the landmark series Blue Planet), Great White Sharks (Planet Earth) and of course lions, leopards and cheetahs (Big Cat Diary).
This is an exciting opportunity to hear Simon speak about his work and there will be time to ask him questions in the Q&A session afterwards.
Hagge Woods Trust was founded in 2013 with the creation of its flagship site Three Hagges Wood-Meadow near York. The ecosystem and the wood-meadow community of volunteers and Friends are flourishing. Without the invaluable support of many individuals, Trusts and Foundations and businesses in the community, Hagge Woods Trust would be unable to sustain its ground-breaking work in restoring nature through the creation of wood-meadows and education children and families about nature and wildlife
Tickets for the event, including Drinks Reception are £20 for adults, £10 for under 25s, and can be purchased through Eventbrite via our website www.haggewoodstrust.org.uk/lecture
