Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Enfield Chase, River Action Day 16.09.2021

September 16 @ 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 Enfield Chase where we will be managing habitat to create sustainable urban drainage systems. We will be planting ponds and pools with native UK waterplant species to help control runoff from the agricultural land surrounding the Salmons Brook.

 

The aim of this event is to plant ponds which will help control pollution and contaminants entering the salmons brook. The ponds or SuDS, will slow down the water and create places for silt and other pollutants to settle and be absorbed before entering the river. The ponds will also create new habitats for wildlife and increase biodiversity in the area, meaning this is a joint flood resilience and biodiversity scheme.

 

There will be lots of planting to do on the day around various wetland sites. 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 help us create the brand new wetlands at Enfield Chase! 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!
