Join us as we explore Epping Forest and discover more about the nature and wildlife that lives here.
Join us on a guided walk in winter. As we walk we will learn more about the trees that tell the story of this area and find out about the local natural history. Trees are cherished for their role in providing habitats for wildlife and the beautiful trees are spectacular and home to many other insects and animals. By learning to identify trees in winter you can gain ID skills that will help you to deepen your knowledge when they leaf again in spring.
