The new CEO of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust will give the opening lecture for the North Notts local group’s 2019 — 20 lecture series. Paul Wilkinson has been in post since January 2019. He is nature conservationist who cares deeply about wildlife and has ambitious plans for the future of the wildlife of Nottinghamshire. He said: “Our natural world is under increasing pressure, and across the globe climate emergencies are being announced. At the same time, we know that there are many thousands of people, in Nottinghamshire alone, who love wildlife, and are, or would, do something to help protect it and set it on a path to recovery. We therefore need to mobilise more people than ever, around one in four from every walk of life, to take action and stand up for wildlife.” Paul will outline the trust’s vision for a Wilder Nottinghamshire, and how everyone can play a part in bringing it about.
This meeting will be held in the Rural Learning Centre at Idle Valley, North Road (A638), Retford DN22 8RQ, on Thursday 12th September, at 7.30pm. Admission is £2.50 and includes refreshments, with everybody welcome, including non-members.
