Wed, 19/06/2019 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Guided tree walk in Sydenham Hill Wood to uncover the ancient landscape of the Great North Wood.

Join our Sydenham Hill Wood Conservation Officer for a guided tree walk. As one of the largest remnants of the Great North Wood, Sydenham Hill has a fascinating range of native tree species which indicate the ancient lineage of the habitats.

A rich natural and cultural history can be uncovered by identifying the trees and understanding why they are there. The trees of Sydenham Hill Wood provide habitat of metropolitan importance to London, with species such as great spotted woodpecker, nuthatch, stock dove, and tree creeper, all dependent on the wood's sessile oaks to survive.

Please wear study footwear fit for uneven paths with gentle inclines, as well as clothing suitable for the conditions. If there is prolonged heavy rain, thunderstorms or high winds the walk will be postponed to a later date. The event is free but a minimum donation of £2 towards our work is recommended.
