Suntrap: Meet the Animals

Suntrap will be on Grandad's Island from 12-6pm on both days of the Walthamstow Garden Party and will be bringing with them a selection of non-native animals for you to meet and greet! Inspired by the colourful illustration spreads of adventure in Grandad's Island by Benji Davies, animals for you to get to know include a corn snake, a fire salamander, a giant millipede, stick insects, a giant African snail and some hissing cockroaches! Animals will be rotated throughout the weekend so do check back in to see more of these unusual creatures.

Since 1967, Suntrap has welcomed primary schools, secondary schools, sixth form colleges, nurseries, children centres and family groups to explore the natural environment within Epping Forest under the guidance of their qualified, expert staff.
