Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Enfield Town Park, Wild Walk 06/07/2021

July 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

What lurks beneath… Freshwater is the source of all life. Let’s dip into Enfield’s ponds and see what lives below!

 

We’ll be doing some pond dipping in the Enfield Town Park ponds and surveying for what lies beneath the surface. Whether you are a nature lover, just fancy a little bit of sunshine or are looking to meet local like-minded people, come down and join us.

 

All life on land revolves around freshwater. Ponds are extremely important for all manner of animals from dragonflies completing their lifecycles, to badgers and foxes looking for a little drink. Bats feast on the flying insects that breed around ponds, frogs and newts patrol for prey and birds use the water for washing, drinking and feeding. Is there nothing the humble pond can’t do?!

 

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 – 6th July 2021

Time – 5.00pm to 6.30pm

Location – Meet at the ponds just south of the cafe in Enfield Town Park (for people who use the what3words app the location code is moons.again.homes)

This will be a drop in event so you can just turn up and leave when you want!
