Joint with the London Natural History Society

This is a return visit to cover the remaining areas of this large site that we were unable to see last year. Syon Park has the last remaining extensive stretch of semi-natural and un-embanked landscape adjoining the Thames in Greater London. We aim to record the flora in this important landscape and rediscover, hopefully, some lost treasures such as Sium latifolium (Greater Water-parsnip), Cyperus longus (Galingale), Mentha pulegium (Pennyroyal) and Persicaria mitis (Tasteless Water-pepper). Please note, the terrain is unlikely to be easy going and may be flooded depending upon the tide. If this the case, we will focus on exploring other areas of the park. This meeting is suitable for beginners and for more experienced botanists. Please bring a packed lunch.

Meet at 11:00am in front of All Saint's Church, Church Street, Isleworth (TQ16787605) on the Thames Path route.
