Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Bury Lodge River Action Day, 08.07.2021

July 8 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Bury Lodge is an excellent location for getting into the river and exploring its length from the river bed. Come along and gets hands on with river restoration!

 

We’ll be doing a river clean-up for most of the day and some invertebrate surveys at the end of the day. Whether you are a nature lover, just fancy getting active or are looking to meet local like-minded people, this is the event for you!

 

Restoring rivers is extremely important. Since 1970 the world has seen a 83% decline in freshwater species. That’s a faster decline than in any other type of habitat! And this isn’t a ‘rest of the world’ problem… in England and Wales less than 1 in 5 rivers is considered in ‘good’ ecological health. Rivers need our help and Thames21 can give you the opportunity to do your bit!

 

Our events are for everyone. No experience is necessary and all training and equipment will be provided on the day. We have waders and wellies for all as well as tools and everything you need for litter picking, so all you have to do is turn up and get stuck in.

 

Date – 8th July 2021

Time – 11.00 am to 15.00 pm

Location – Meet at Bury Lodge Wetlands in Enfield, on the footpath just off the A10 (for people who use the what3words app the code is back.call.sand)

Please also bring with you lunch and plenty of water. Please also dress suitably for the weather and bring a sun hat and sun cream if it’s hot! We look forward to meeting you and making a difference to your local river!
