Clean up and project talk – Boston Manor Park 09/12/20
9th December 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Over the next few months, Thames21 will be working to boost river health at Boston Manor Park, by adding large wood and felled trees into the river channel.
Natural rivers aren’t straight with a flat bed – they are ‘wiggly’, with areas where water moves fast, areas where it moves slowly, and differences in depth.
These different areas provide homes for plants and wildlife, such as dragonflies and fish – including baby fish, which like to hide amongst tree roots and logs.
This first event will include removing some litter from the site, and our river restoration manager Lily will be on hand to give an informative walk and talk about the project and the reasoning behind it.
All tools and equipment are provided, along with wellies, waders and protective gloves. Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions. There are currently no facilities open on site so please factor this into your planning! Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Due to coronavirus restrictions, these events have limited places – please use the below form to book with us.
We are not currently able to provide refreshments but you are welcome to bring a packed lunch and drink!
Meeting Point: Footbridge to Clitheroe Island, underneath the M4 in Boston Manor Park.
