Details

More than 300,000 water plants and 27,000 trees and shrubs were planted by hand during the construction of London Wetland Centre. Each wetland habitat was designed to attract certain species: wet grassland for snipe and redshank; seasonally flooded marshes for gadwall and shoveler; and reed beds for bitterns and water rail. Come on this walk with a warden and learn more about these different habitats and the work that goes into managing them. Plus, along the way you’ll discover more about the seasonal wildlife on the reserve.
