Explore the interconnection between Queerness and nature

Did you know that trees can change their sex, that slugs have both female and male reproductive organs, and that many of the birds found in the Royal Parks pair up into same-sex couples?

This spring, join consultant ecologist Connor Butler on a 90-minute guided nature walk through the beautiful Royal Parks.

  • Discover how Queerness can be found in everything from birds to bugs
  • Explore the interconnectedness between nature and LGBTQ+ history
  • Enjoy a leisurely stroll through some of London's most beautiful green spaces
