London Natural History Society The place for wildlife in London

London Natural History Society - The place for wildlife in London


Birch Mazegill SQUAREThe 2021 virtual talk series included topics across all sections of the society, including botany, ornithology and entomology. 

The first talk of the year, Trees and Fungi with David Humphries, was a record breaker with over 400 people in attendance of the live event.

The Ecology and Conservation Studies Society teamed up with LNHS to host a series of Gardening For Wildlife talks, including talks on bird and invertebrates.

ZSL have also partnered up with us to bring you talks on monitoring riverflies to assess pollution, how they use "CSI" techniques to udnerstand cetacean strandings and a recording scheme monitoring hedgehogs in London.
