Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Glenbrook Wetlands, River Action Day 18.08.2021

August 18 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm

Thames21 and Enfield Council are teaming up to deliver conservation and restoration events in Enfield, creating cleaner and safer spaces for wildlife.

Join us at Glenbrook Wetlands where we will be managing habitat to make sure the wetlands are functioning as they should.


This event is a habitat management event, focused around the wetlands at Glenbrook and Boxers Lake. The aim of this event is to maintain the channels which funnel rain into the stream and to maintain the stream so that it channels water into the wetland and reedbed spaces. This will help to create a wetland that functions as a sustainable urban drainage system or SuDS.


There will be lots of tasks to do on the day including scrub clearance, channel digging, clearing litter and rubbish out of the wetlands and more. To complete these tasks volunteers will be putting on waders and jumping in the shallow stream but there will also be lots of activities to do on the banks for people who don’t want to go into the water.


Come down and help us help restore the wetlands at Glenbrook! Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all the tools, equipment and training so you can just turn up and get stuck in!


Please sign up below. Hope to see you there!
