Join us as we explore Bushy Park, one of London’s Royal Parks and discover more about the nature and wildlife that lives here.
During this guided walk, we will get to know nature and wildlife around us. During this guided walk we will discover more about plants, invertebrates and much more. We will lift logs, dip in the pond, look closely at trees and other activities to find out more about nature and wildlife around us and how we can do more to look after it.
