Part of the Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire Wildlife Trust programme of talks.
The ABC of Naming Nature – a talk by Brian Goodwin.
Join your local group for a fun talk on the bizarre names found in the animal kingdom.
Prunella is a girl’s name (Mrs Fawlty!), but it also applies to a plant (self-heal) and a bird (dunnock). And how about the fungus beetles – Gelae bean, Gelae donut and Gelae fish? To get everyone in a festive mood, Brian Goodwin will take a light-hearted look at names in nature. Prepare to be amazed and amused!
The admission price includes refreshments.
Please note that this event will be held at the Annunciation Church Hall in Chesterfield. The entrance is off Queen Street, S40 2SF
