Pick up some tree identification skills and learn about the forgotten landscape of the Great North Wood on this London Wildlife Trust tree walk.

The Great North Wood is an ancient landscape of woodland and wooded commons that once covered the high ground between Deptford, Streatham and Selhurst.

This year London Wildlife Trust launched a project to raise awareness of this landscape and encourage people to explore it.

Our walk on 2nd June will be expertly led by community outreach officer Sam Bentley-Toon, who will explain how this fragment of an ancient woodland still supports a wide array of plants and animals and provides people with a welcome taste of nature and an escape from the crowded urban environment.

No booking is required for this free event but if you'd like to find out more please contact Sam on the details on the right-hand side.
