Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Turkey Brook River Action Day, 17.06.2021

June 17 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

We are looking to give this wonderful stretch of river back to nature and wildlife. Join us at the Prince of Wales Wetlands.

 

The stretch of the Turkey Brook around Prince of Wales Wetland is very important for wildlife as it is connected to the Lea Valley and helps extend a strip of wild land that forms an excellent corridor for wildlife. Birds like egrets, kingfishers and herons fish in the shallow waters and waterfowl explore up the Turkey Brook from the River Lea. Insects born along the river provide food for dragonflies and other birds and muntjac deer prints can be found dotted on the muddy banks.

However, this stretch of the Turkey Brook is quite badly littered so Thames21 in Partnership with Enfield Council are looking to restore it back to its natural glory! Come and give nature a hand! We welcome anyone to come down and join in and no experience is necessary! We will provide all equipment include waders so you can gain a completely new perspective from IN THE RIVER! This is an excellent opportunity to give back to your local community and a good first step to protecting your local wildlife and green spaces. Hopefully see you there..
