The following day the group was taken to visit a fantastic piece of nature inside a city,
a wildlife reserve, The Camley Street Natural Park, in the surroundings of
King's Cross green areas and besides Regent's Canal.
Just in the middle of one of the busiest developing parts of London houses a
two acre nature reserve that was once a "coal drop" and after being left misused,
nature played its part in overtaking the space. Years later London's authorities
and neighbors took their part to preserve the area with its rich biodiversity
and worked to turn it into a nature reserve, a symbol of the concept of urban
nature conservation models of that time.
There is a visitor's center, a cafe, and research facilities for those who
are workingand taking care of the reserve.
One of the points of interest is the Floating Forest Garden, a fantastic forest
create on a barge by the Regent's Canal, a perfect example of men working
along with nature.
The reserve is considered also an educational place, therefore there are signals,
labels, posters and located in different parts of the park offering information
about details and wildlife.
Partial view of the facilities for researchers.

The visit and walk to the reserve was a surprising and very pleasant one!
