Cley Calling Presents: Roy Dennis

Thursday 27 August, 2020
Cottongrass Summer: Essays of a naturalist through the year – Roy Dennis in Conversation with NWT's Nick Acheson. This event will take place on Zoom and is free to join.

Through unparallelled expertise as a field naturalist, Roy Dennis is able to write about the natural world – in a way that considers both the problems and the progress in ecology and conservation. Beginning with cottongrass, whose snow-white blooms blow gently in the wind across the wetter moors and bogs, this is a year-round trove of insight and knowledge for anyone who cares about the natural-world from birdsong and biodiversity to sphagnum and species reintroduction.

Written by one of our most prominent advocates for rewilding, Cottongrass Summer has a clear message: 'Never give up on trying to conserve and restore wildlife and the wild places you cherish. It's essential to try and to succeed. And remember, it's never if, but 'when' - and with climate chaos closing in, the time is now.'

NB - Roy was initially due to speak about his book ‘Restoring the Wild’, scheduled for release this August. Unfortunately, the release date has been pushed back to March 2021. Therefore, he will predominantly be speaking about his previous book ‘Cottongrass Summer’.

This book is available to buy from our Investor in Wildlife, WildSounds
