The Cambridge Local Group organises talks and walks, usually on the last Wednesday of each month. The group covers the City of Cambridge and nearby villages but welcomes anyone interested to its events.

As members of the Wildlife Trust we want to inspire people about the natural world and to contribute to this at the Cambridge Local Group we organise talks and walks, usually on the last Wednesday of each month.  

Our talks are held monthly from January to April and September to November. They start at 7.30 p.m., finishing by 9.30 p.m. Invited speakers cover a wide range of natural history topics, illustrated with slides. Light refreshments (tea, coffee, fruit juice and biscuits) are served after the talk. They take place in the Community Room at the Church of St John the Evangelist, on the corner of Hills Road and Blinco Grove. There's a small charge of £2.5, which covers expenses, with the surplus going to the Wildlife Trust to support their work.

Our walks in the summer are usually on local nature reserves. Regular events include enjoying chalk grassland flowers in East Pit or along the Roman Road, surveying for glow-worms in East Pit – one of their local strongholds – in July, and bat walks.
