Nature in Town and Cities is a celebrated and long-awaited guide to urban natural history, and part of the fantastic The New Naturalist series. Bath’s Urban Ecology expert, Professor David Goode will give an illustrated talk with reference to our city and urban wildlife around the country. Goode describes the range of habitats and species which exist within urban areas, and shows how our understanding is being applied to encourage a greater variety of nature into towns and cities. Anecdotes and stories about the wildlife of towns and cities around the country tell how local people have won battles to protect their local patch and illustrate how an ecological approach can create habitats from tiny oases to urban woodland and wetlands. Fascinating, amusing and informative, this is an event for anyone keen to preserve our wonderful surroundings.
