Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Turkey Brook River Action Day, Prince of Wales Wetlands, 01.07.2021

July 1 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Help us rewild the Turkey Brook! Join us at the Prince of Wales Wetlands for a River Action Day.

 

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 little 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 damselflies 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! This is the second event we have held at this site but we believe it is a very valuable location and a good place to catch rubbish before it is washed into the River Lea. 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 including 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. We look forward to meeting you and making a difference to your local river!
