This free drop-in event for children will be held in the Museum of Garden History's new wildlife garden. Experts will lead discovery walks around the garden that will provide the chance to learn about the flowers that grow in the garden and the wildlife that makes its home in the heart of the city alongside humans.

There will be fun worksheet activities to do and information sheets to take home.

There will also be the chance to see some of the 'kit' used to record wildlife, from bat boxes to butterfly nets. Children are invited to bring along photographs or drawings of plants or wildlife that they have seen near their home for identification (but please remind them not to pick flowers from the wild or from public spaces or to remove wild creatures from their habitat).

Iain Bolton, biodiversity officer from Lambeth Council, will lead the activities and Anne Jennings, head of horticulture at the Museum, will also be on hand to answer any questions.
