Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Albany Park, River Action Day 26.09.2021

September 26 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

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

Join us at Albany Park where we will be managing habitat to improve the health of the Turkey Brook. 

 

The aim of this event is to improve the new section of opened river in Albany Park. We will be conducting a number of tasks on the day both in the river and on the bank. The section of the Turkey Brook that runs through Albany Park is a wonderful bit of river. Until 2020 the river ran along a straight concrete channel at the north end of the park, however thanks to Enfield Council the channel now flows freely through the park and is connected to a number of wetland areas. This project has now been completed and has been extremely beneficial for both people and wildlife. Come down and join us for a River Action Day and see for yourselves!

 

There will be a variety of different tasks to do on the day. To complete these tasks volunteers will may be putting on waders and jumping in the shallow wetland 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 explore this new project in Albany Park! 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!
