Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Forty Hall Estate (Beaver reintroduction event), River Action Day 07.10.2021

October 7 @ 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.

 

Join us at Forty Hall Estate where we will be getting the landscape ready for London’s first beaver reintroduction. After 400 years these wonderful creatures will once again be using the Thames basin.

 

This is a habitat management event, focused on the proposed area of the beaver enclosure. There is currently fencing running through the area and we will be removing this to make way for the beaver enclosure. We will also be conducting Phase 1 habitat surveys to get an idea of how the landscape may change and evolve with the addition of the beavers. Beavers are engineers of their own environments so we expect to see some changes. They can be extremely useful for flood prevention and habitat diversity and we can’t wait to see them in their new home.

 

For more information on this amazing animal you can visit the Beaver Trust website or the Rewilding Britain website. A map of where beavers have been introduced in the UK can be found here.

 

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!
