When: 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Join Harry Barton, Chief Executive of Devon Wildlife Trust, for an online talk about how we can make our urban spaces better for wildlife
Harry Barton is the Chief Executive of Devon Wildlife Trust. In this presentation, Harry will discuss the threats that face our wildlife and how we can all take action to help wildlife in urban places like Plymouth. Inspiring examples of what has been achieved elsewhere can help give us ideas about what is possible.
