Join Harrow Nature Heroes to learn about the wildlife life living in the brook as it flows through Headstone Manor Park. Discover the difference the recent improvements have made. The event includes paddling and dipping. Learn to find and identify the creatures who live in our stream and discover how we can protect and care for them in the future.

Designed for nature lovers aged 7 to 11 with an accompanying adult. (no unaccompanied children)

We will:

  • learn how to do a ‘Riverfly monitoring survey’ to discover how healthy the water conditions are.
  • discover first-hand what creatures live in the brook and fascinating facts about them
  • play a game to discover what the lives of the invaluable invertebrates are like.
  • do a craft activity based on the water life.

This event is run in partnership with Thames21 and the Friends of Headstone Manor Park and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage and the National Lottery community fund. Please book a place for yourself as well as your child as, to ensure your safety, we are restricting numbers to a maximum of 22 people. Book your place fast to avoid disappointment.

Please look after yourselves and, where possible, stay 2m apart and remain sensitive to the needs of others who may be more vulnerable. As we are outdoors we do not need to wear a mask but feel free to wear one if this will make you feel safe.
