About the event

London Wildlife Trust is hosting a programme of family learning opportunities at Crane Park Island. These family learning opportunities are aimed at the Richmond community through funding from Richmond Borough Council. We are running 2-hour workshops aimed to introduce as many Richmond residents to nature as possible. Each person can only participate once in a workshop from December 2019-July 2020. 

These workshops are funded for people from lower income households and those receiving benefits. However, all are welcome, if you can make a donation, these are gratefully received. All profits from the events we run at Crane Park Island are invested into London Wildlife Trust’s conservation work and the ongoing care of its nature reserves.

The workshop on 8th December is Minibeast Magic! During the two hours we will explore Crane Park island to discover the different minibeasts that live in a variety of habitats - under logs, in the bushes, in the pond and even in the river! Children will participate with their parents/guardians and learn together as a family.

Everyone should be dressed suitably for the weather and in clothes that may get a bit muddy. If you have wellies wear them but don't worry if you don't have them you can still join in all the activities. 

More sessions will be released in January. Booking is essential. 

Meet at the Shot Tower in Crane Park, next to the entrance to Crane Park Island. Arrive 10 mins before the start to register and so you don't miss any of the workshop.
