CANCELLED: Bat Walk: 25th September 2020 @ 7.00pm

10/09/20: Due to new government restrictions on public gatherings on more than 6 people, our planned bat walk has been cancelled until further notice. We know many of you were looking forward to it. We will keep you posted with any updates on the FoSC webpage

Unless restrictions prevent it, this walk will start at 7.00pm by the Rookery main gates. Numbers will be capped and regulations, such as social distancing, may apply.

Join Dr Iain Boulton for an evening walk & talk about one of our very popular residents, the much misunderstood bat. Now protected, they are a small but important pollinator & pest controller for our common.

Bring a torch.

Bat detectors will be available.

Free, but booking is essential.

Streatham Common’s woodland to receive funding

Streatham Common’s woodland to receive funding

Streatham Common is to benefit from a new Heritage Lottery funded project run by the London Wildlife Trust.

The Great North Wood project, which is to receive £699,000 over the next four years, aims to revive and reimagine a wood that once covered a large swathe of land lying south-west of London, of which only fragments remain. Both educational activities and woodland management will be carried out. Precisely what will be funded in Streatham Common’s woodlands has yet to be established.
