Wildlife Book Club

Address: Oakham Road

If you love reading and wildlife, Rutland Water Nature Reserve’s Wildlife Book Club is looking for you!

We meet once a month to share thoughts and comments on current popular natural history reads. We don’t take ourselves too seriously – we simply choose a title or two to discuss each month and get together to share our opinions on the books and usually end up chatting about all sorts of related topics too! All the books on our list come highly recommended and have a wildlife and/or wild places theme so it’s a great way to meet new friends who share your interests, perhaps read books you wouldn’t have otherwise, and learn more about natural history and nature conservation.
It’s free to become a member; all you need is to be willing to read at least one book per month and available to meet with the rest of the group on the dates below. Unfortunately we are unable to supply large numbers of each book, but we may be able to lend one or two. All the books can be purchased at a reasonable price for e-readers and paper copies, or your local library may be able to help you borrow one for free.

At our February meeting we’ll be discussing both Matt Merritt’s A Sky Full of Birds and John Bartram’s Park Life: The Memoirs of a Royal Parks Gamekeeper.

If you think Rutland Water Nature Reserve’s Wildlife Book Club is for you, please get in touch with Holly, our Community Engagement Officer, by emailing community@rutlandwater.org.uk or call the Volunteer Training Centre on 01572 720049 for more details.
