Camley Street Natural Park

Albeit small, this hidden oasis by the canal next to Kings Cross offers diverse woodland, grassland and wetland habitats including ponds, reedbed and marshy areas, providing a rich habitat for birds, butterflies, amphibians and plant life.

The multi-functional floating reedbeds serve as habitats and shelter for birds, invertebrates and fish. They also protect the water from canal pollution.

Sessions are led by the London Wildlife Trust. These are very hands-on nature sessions and are all linked to the national curriculum:
Pond Dipping
Minibeast Hunting
Plant Detectives
Wild Wellbeing
Rocks & Soil

The 1.5-hour school sessions are led by a member of staff from the London Wildlife Trust outdoor learning team.

Check their detailed session plans here.
