Winter Talk 2021 - A London Alive with Nature

9th February 2021 from 7.30pm


Our annual Winter Talk, we are delighted to welcome Edwin Malins, Nature Reserves Manager at London Wildlife Trust.  

Edwin's talk is entitled “A London Alive with Nature” and will consider the following themes:

  • Urban nature reserves and how they fit in the wider landscape
  • Pre-human landscapes and habitats
  • Post-human landscapes and habitats
  • How we manage land for wildlife in London today and what more could we do.


Edwin oversees a portfolio of 36 nature reserves across the Capital. He is a former officer on the Great North Wood project and has a keen interest in how people and wildlife can live together in cities.
