WILDLIFE presenter 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.

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. 

The talk will be held at the Kindle Centre in Hereford, beginning at 7.45pm, on Wednesday, October 18.

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.
