*CANCELLED* River Cray – Chalk Stream Restoration Using Large Wood, Foots Cray Meadows, Bexley

January 19 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

On the River Cray at Foots Cray Meadows, we are restoring an 800m stretch of chalk stream habitat using large wood to encourage natural river processes. This work aims to create better and more varied habitat for plants, invertebrates, fish, birds and more to thrive.

Join us to learn more about how these works will improve the river’s health and get some hands-on experience of river restoration! We need volunteers to help move woody material to the river from other parts of the site, and help to install and fix this wood in the river.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, these events have limited places – please use the below form to book with us.
We are not currently able to provide refreshments but you are welcome to bring a packed lunch and drink!

The meeting point will be Leafield Lane, DA14 5EB, just off North Cray Road.

We aim to start at 10:00 and finish by 14:00. Please aim to arrive by 9:45 to get kitted up. Waders or wellington boots and tools will be provided.

Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.

This work is part of the Craywatch project: https://www.thames21.org.uk/2020/11/thames21-restores-its-first-london-chalk-stream/
