For people and wildlife
Creekside Discovery Centre is a charity working in one of the most biodiverse landscapes in London with a nature park and creekside.
We work with schools, people and companies through river and wildflower walks and talks, sharing our knowledge and know-how.
Together we can support and nurture urban wildlife and habitats across the UK for everyone.
