The Friends of Parkland Walk hold their first ever nature day this weekend, complete with bee experts and butterfly spotting.

The event follows the creation of a Wildlife Trail to improve the environment for plants and animals.

Committee member Simon Olley told the Ham&High: “We have been working for over three years to create an area which is a wildlife haven. We have been able to open it up so children will be able to learn about nature.”

The event runs from 12 till 5 on Saturday at the Highgate end of Parkland Walk. It will see stalls from a variety of conservation groups – including Haringey Council’s conservation officer – while the fire brigade hopes to attend to fill up the pond volunteers have installed to increase biodiversity.

Simon added: “Hopefully there will people there at the weekend who’ll perhaps have skills they want to offer and we can get more people involved.”
