The London Wildlife Festival, a brand new event celebrating urban wildlife and conservation, is aiming to bring the very importance of the natural world to “the forefront of conversation and thought”.
Walthamstow Wetlands, with its 211 hectares of space and 10 stunning reservoirs, will host the London Wildlife Festival on 10-11 August.
Curated by London Wildlife Trust and David Lindo, The Urban Birder, visitors can learn about the issues facing the natural world and explore first-hand what nature and wildlife dwells on London’s doorstep with a series of guided walks.
The London Wildlife Festival will feature live music, art exhibitions, and literary events all inspired by nature and there will also be educational multi-media exhibitions and film screenings taking place across the site.
Marine life, activism, conservation, living plastic-free and ways to make individual changes to collectively change the world around you will be the subjects of talks and debates. There will also be yoga, mindfulness and wellbeing workshops as well as an opportunity to learn new crafts such as wildlife photography, birdwatching, pottery, floristry, landscape drawing and creative writing.
