CELEBRATE THE FRP YEAR OF THE TREE AT OUR NEXT DISCOVERERS EVENT

'Meet the Shape Shifters of High Wood'

Some trees never really die – they just turn into something else!
On Sunday, March 29th, Volunteer Community Ranger Peter Sands will introduce Discoverers families to some of Richmond Park’s most intriguing residents. Many dead and decaying trees have become natural sculpture – often taking on animal or other forms. These mysterious tree creatures are also vital contributors to our Park’s biodiversity.
Get to know more on the trail of Richmond Park’s remarkable Shape Shifters!

More details and booking information will be published here soon.
