John Taylor Talk

We have always very much enjoyed naturalist and photographer John Tyler’s talks and his keen observations on the natural world around us. We are delighted that John is able to pay a return visit to the Amersham Society for our last talk this year.

In this talk we will travel through a hundred million years, from warm seas, through Ice Ages, tundra and forest to the farmland and beechwoods of today, to follow the story of the Chiltern landscape and its wildlife.

The talk starts at 8.00pm. If you wish to participate in the meeting please email to info@amershamsociety.org requesting the invitation.
