Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Pymmes Park, River Action Day 25.07.2021

July 25 @ 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 in Pymmes Park where we will be tackling pollution and managing habitat to re-wild the park to create a healthy environment for both people and nature.

 

This event is a clean-up event around the wetlands in the park. Pymmes park is a haven for so many local people. It is a really well used park and we believe it deserves some care and attention! Lots of waterfowl use the park as well as lots of other bird species in the trees and reeds. Dragonflies and many species of bees are also present and lovely flowers scatter the more wild areas. Pymmes park acts as a refuge for wildlife and people and we believe this is something that need protecting. London is a green city, with over 3000 parks and public green spaces. Together these cover 18% of London, meaning if these spaces were properly managed, we could have a capital full of amazing and exciting plants and animals! The Moore Brook also runs through the park and empties into the large ponds. This is one of the lost rivers of London and through rewilding and management, the pollution in the river can be tackled before it enters the Pymmes Brook!

 

Come down and help us help improve Pymmes park for wildlife! 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!
