South Notts Local Group`s regular Winter Wildlife Talks programme is on hold, as it does not appear to be viable under a social distancing regime. But we are delighted to invite you to a FREE online trial of a talk, using Zoom. You will be able to join our expert speaker NEIL GLENN from the comfort of his own home with a slide talk  entitled …..

VALLEY PARADE: The birds and wildlife of the Lower Rio Grande Valley – We might not be able to visit them during travel restrictions, but Neil will help us enjoy the sights and sounds of some of our beautiful avian creatures from our own homes.
The talk is scheduled for Thursday 30th July with logging on from 7.15 pm, and starting at 7.30pm will last  about 60 minutes + breaks for questions. SNG hope you can join us for our experiment, but you will need to reserve an access slot in advance as numbers are limited. So to book a slot please follow this link and you will be sent the access permissions by E Mail.

This is a FREE event because we are experimenting with delivering talks in a new way and it would help us enormously if you would provide feedback via a short survey that we will email to you afterwards. Subject to your feedback, our plan is to organise an online Winter Wildlife Talks Programme and there will be a small charge to access these sessions. This will help us replace some of the vital fundraising activities we usually run to support Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust in its work standing up for Wildlife in Rushcliffe and wider Nottinghamshire.

Of course some of you may not have used ZOOM before. For our talks the minimum requirement to see & hear the slide talk is either a PC/Laptop or Tablet with an internet connection and audio. A video cam is not essential for this event and if the E Mail containing the access link is on the same device, you do not need to install ZOOM software.

So, grab a mug of coffee (or something stronger) and settle down for a relaxing evening with Neil, the South Notts Local Group and the Birds of the Rio Grande Valley.
