Queer Ecology Evening Walk

Wednesday 19 June 2024, 6:30pm-7:30pm
£12 - 15

In celebration of Pride Month, join our Head of Learning and Public Engagement, Connor Butler at Chelsea Physic Garden for a guided tour discovering the queer ecology that exists within the walls of London’s oldest botanic garden.

Did you know that scientists often struggle to find male woodlice, that male trees can turn female, or that many of London’s birds partner up into same-sex couples?

‘Queer Ecology’ aims to challenge what we think of as being ‘natural’ or ‘unnatural’ and celebrates diversity in all life. Join Connor on a guided nature walk to explore the diverse and unusual lifecycles found in the plants and animals. You’ll learn how to identify common species and gain a new fascination with the natural world.

Designed for ages 16+
