Virtual Talks


The LNHS Virtual Natural History Talk series brings together naturalists with experts and specialists using the Zoom videoconferencing tool.

Our talks are hosted fortnightly and are free to attend (though booking is required).

The talks cover a wide range of subjects, from birds to bats, worms to weeds, fungi to foxes and everything inbetween.

Talks are around 30-40 minutes in length and are followed by a live Q&A between the guest speaker and audience.

The LNHS News section is the place to keep up-to-date with society announcements and project updates.

It also houses any section or recorder reports that we publish on our website, as well as any book reviews.

In addition, we accept blogs from naturalists and biodiversity-sector organisations that want to share their experiences and opportunities with our members.
