Join us for a special members-only talk with Mathew Frith, Director of Conservation, on the evening of Thursday 25th January 2018

Camley Street Natural Park has a long history. This small nature reserve, just ten minutes’ walk from King’s Cross and St Pancras, was created from scratch by visionary activists in the 1980s, but its roots were first shaped by London’s industrial growth from the 1820s.

Kingfisher, reed warbler and dragonflies now thrive where slums, coal and gas once dominated, ringed by railway steel and the busy waters of the Regent’s Canal.

Mathew’s talk will take us on a journey of discovery, centred around the establishment of Camley Street Natural Park and its symbolic importance as a tranquil urban sanctuary for wildlife.

Thursday 25th January 6-9pm. Camley Street Natural Park. Refreshments will be available. Booking essential.
