Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – River Action Day, Broomfield Park 15.07.2021

July 15 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Thames21 and Enfield Council are teaming up with the Friends of Broomfield Park to improve the parks ponds and help create a cleaner and safer space for wildlife.

 

This event is a clean-up event and will focus on cleaning in and around the ponds. We will be removing litter from the large ponds and also removing wire from the reedbeds.

 

The park is home to a large number of waterfowl and other bird species. Improving these habitats will hopefully bring even more wildlife to the area! Parks in the city like an oasis for wildlife. London is very lucky with the amount of green space left in the city. the London National Park City Project  suggests that 47% of London is green space and a further 2.5% is blue (meaning rivers, lakes and streams). This green space provides a lifeline for our beloved garden wildlife and if managed and cared for could create habitats for species on the brink like hedgehogs, badgers, skylarks and great crested newts. There’s so much amazing wildlife just waiting to make a comeback. It’s all to play for!

 

Come down and help us help improve Broomfield 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!

 

Please sign up below. Hope to see you there!
