Naturalists Bill Oddie and Simon King today joined schoolchildren and volunteers to celebrate The Wildlife Trusts' centenary.
The Wildlife Trusts, originally called the Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves, was founded in 1912 by banker Charles Rothschild.
Simon King - President of The Wildlife Trusts - and Bill Oddie - Vice President - were joined by The Wildlife Trusts’ Chief Executive Stephanie Hilborne and former President Professor Aubrey Manning and pupils from Cavendish Primary School in Chiswick at London Wildlife Trust’s nearby Gunnersbury Triangle nature reserve to mark the centenary.
