Calling all south London nature enthusiasts. Keen to give your children the nature bug? On Saturday 16 March, London Wildlife Trust is hosting two events in Kidbrooke – a nature conservation volunteering session and a family bird walk, writes Laura Burgoine…

Ideal for someone who’s keen to make a positive difference to their local area, London Wildlife Trust volunteering sessions teach nature enthusiasts habitat management and wildlife surveying techniques and help them put these skills into practice.

The volunteering session will focus on how to manage habitats for nature conservation. Running from 10:30am-2pm, it kicks off at Birdbrook Nature Reserve near Kidbrooke Station before heading into Cator Park in Kidbrooke Village.

Those keen in taking part and aged 16 or over can register their interest with Catherine Cullen at the London Wildlife Trust by either emailing ccullen@wildlondon.org.uk or calling 07734 599 727.

Tell your mallards from your gadwalls with the family bird walk. Those wanting to spot the difference between wildfowl species – and learn about the habitats supporting them – can come on down to Cator Park North at Kidbrooke Village on the afternoon of the 16 March.

The perfect afternoon out for mums, dads, children and grandparents, the family bird walk – guided by London Wildlife Trust – offers the chance for everyone to explore nature right on their doorstep. The guided walk will start at 2:00pm and run for an hour and a half.

There’s no need to register – everyone is welcome to come down on the day! Please meet outside the Kidbrooke Village sales and marketing suite located at Wallace Court, on the edge of Cator Park North.

Kidbrooke Village’s Sales and Marketing Suite is open from 10am to 6pm (8pm on Thursdays) and is located at Wallace Court,
40 Tizzard Grove, SE3 9FD.
