Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Firs Farm, River Action Day 11.08.2021

August 11 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

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

Join us at Firs Farm Wetlands where we will be creating a new bird island and managing habitat to help maintain a healthy environment for both people and nature.

 

This event is a habitat management event, focused around the wetlands at Firs Farm. This will be the second day at Firs Farm in two weeks and we will be aiming to complete the island in the middle of the main pond. It is a really well used space and we believe it deserves some care and attention!

 

The Firs Farm Wetlands is an exciting space that was created by Enfield Council and Thames21. Since its creation it has fully naturalised and now boasts a huge number of species of plants and animals. A large number of flying insects, bog plants and waterfowl can be found at this site. This  habitat management event will focus on creating a new island where waterfowl can rest and nest away from foxes, dogs and people. It should be an interesting task and something we have never done before on the project so come down and lend a hand!

There will be lots of tasks to do on the day including cleaning litter and rubbish out of the wetlands, building the island and more. To complete these tasks volunteers will be putting on waders and jumping in the shallow pond 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 help restore the wetlands in Firs Farm! 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!
