Title and blurb TBD – Talk will be given virtually
Well I’ll be dammed, beavers are back!
Carbon sequestrators, biodiversity boosters, flood defenders and wild fire terminators – the beaver is the Swiss Army Knife of the riparian zone. The value of their anal gland secretions and classification as a fish led to their demise over the last few centuries … But now we’ve stopped all that nonsense and beavers are back! Find out how and why the reintroduction of these incredibly cute ecosystem engineers is benefitting us and our landscape.
Jenny Chapman has a lifelong love of the natural world and became a bit obsessed with beavers a few years ago. Despite a deluge of puns and innuendo she remains a firm beaver believer. Jenny has a degree in Biology, a Masters in Evolutionary Genetics and splits her free time between hula hooping and environmental activism.

Science Buildings of Britain
Britain is littered with buildings full of nerds, and sometimes it seems like every one is worse than the one before. In this talk Steve Cross, comedian and in no way an architect or engineer, will introduce some of his favourites, and speculate wildly on what led them to be like this.
Steve is an award-winning performer, comedian and podcaster. He’s also a semi-professional Dungeons and Dragons player, event host, trainer and consultant. Steve will do anything for enough money. Steve can be found on Twitter @steve_x, Instagram @stevecrossphotos and FaceBook.com/SteveCrossComedy. Every month Steve runs Science Showoff, where nerds tell jokes to people like you.
