Friends of Eaton Park is delighted to announce three nature events, organised in partnership with local specialists and wildlife  organisations. Spread throughout the year they use Eaton Park as a place to learn about and celebrate the natural world.

All events start or are based at the Rotunda, in the heart of Eaton Park.
