Thames Ambassador training – Thames River Watch
26th April 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Want to help create a buzz about the health of the Thames? Help Thames21 spread the word about what we are doing on the Thames, get people involved, and get people excited about taking action to help clean up and monitor the Thames by becoming a Thames River Watch ambassador. As a Thames ambassador, you will support our events by welcoming volunteers, chatting to locals, and answering questions about Thames21. Our events are good at generating curiosity, so we want to explain what we are doing and get people to join in.
This day-long training session will provide non-experts with the knowledge and tools to become a Thames River Watch ambassador. Click here to find out more about the Thames River Watch project.
The session will include:
- An introduction to Thames River Watch
- The story of London’s River
- The tidal foreshore environment
- Water quality on the Thames (including how to monitor it)
- Wildlife in the river
- Ways for the public to get involved
The session involves indoor learning and a practical session on the foreshore.
