NHSN Talks

Since 1829, NHSN's Nature Talks have shared the latest news and research from the environmental field. Discover the new programme here.

Connection with the natural world has never been more important. This winter, we’ll do our best to bring you a range of new and exciting online talks and events you can enjoy from the comfort of home. Keep an eye on this page for exciting announcements over the weeks and months ahead.

Since 1829, NHSN’s natural history talks have shared the latest news and research with naturalists and nature lovers across the North East. From Coquet Island to cuckoos,  beavers to bees, our natural history talks cover a range of topics and are designed to inspire wonder in the natural world. We hope you find something to inspire you this winter.

Most events, including our natural history talks, are open to everyone although some events are for NHSN members only. Everyone is welcome to join the NHSN.

If you are not an NHSN member, some events may ask for a donation or charge a fee. Please check event descriptions for cost and participation details.

Due to the ongoing spread of coronavirus, we have paused our outdoor programme until the situation improves.
