The last talk in the Cambridge Natural History Society’s autumn programme will be on Thursday 6th December and will be followed by a seasonal social.

Anastasiya Timoshyna of TRAFFIC will give a talk on “The world of FairWild”. She will discuss the often-unspoken role of wild plants in our daily routines – in teas, cosmetics, medicines, and even gin* – and how the FairWild sustainability framework is working to protect wild plants in trade, the people who collect them, and the biodiverse ecosystems they’re harvested from.

The seasonal social will follow the talk, with food and drink in the adjacent Common Room from about 8:15 until 10:00 pm. Tickets for the seasonal social, including admission to the talk, are £10. Please email tickets@cnhs.org.uk to reserve a ticket so we can cater for the correct number of people.

* Tasters may be available at the seasonal social.

The talk starts at 6:45 pm prompt, in the David Attenborough Building, CB2 3QZ

Tea and coffee will be available for a small donation from 6:15 pm.

Admission to the talk only £3; CNHS members £1.50; students with ID 50p; ARU Wildlife Society & Cambridge University Nature Society members free.

Do come along.

There is no car parking on site.
