An entry in one of WWT’s Commemoration Books or a leaf on our Tree of Life establishes an enduring tribute for you to visit.

Tree of Life

If you are local to our Slimbridge Wetland Centre, you can celebrate the life of your loved one with a beautiful inscribed leaf hand on one of our Trees of Life. This wonderful place of quiet contemplation is surrounded by a tranquil Garden of Reflection, a perfect setting for you to visit and remember your loved one.

You can download the form here, or alternatively, you can email celebration@wwt.org.uk or telephone 01453 891157 during working hours.
