Please see attached the Nature’s Gym programme for July-September 2015. I hope there is something in there that you will enjoy!
Please be aware that there are quite a few sessions that involve wearing waders and working in the river. At these sessions, we can not guarantee that there will be any work available on dry land. If working in water isn’t something that you feel comfortable with, we understand if you would prefer to take a break for a while. We will welcome you back with open arms once the 3 Rivers Clean Up is over!
If you would like to join in with these rivers sessions, booking is essential even if you are a regular volunteer. There are other sessions running throughout the week with our partners. You can find details of these events at the 3 Rivers Clean Up website or Facebook page.
As part of the event London Bubble will be running two story telling events, one in Ladywell Fields and one in Manor Park. For more information about these events, please visit our earlier post. Join in as well using the hastag, #whatlivesinlewisham on Twitter and Instgram.
The Catchment Improvement Plan is an initiative being led by Thames 21 and supported by several partners, including Lewisham Council, to encourage those with an interest in their local rivers to express their views and have a say about the future of the River Pool, the River Quaggy and the River Ravensbourne. The project has a focus on getting local people more involved in their environment and help them to understand more about the rivers in their backyard.
We want to hear your thoughts about your local stretch of the river – what you like about it, what you don’t like, what would help you love it more and finally what you can suggest be done to improve it. (Even if you don’t live near to the river, we’d still like to hear from you if you have comments to make about it!)
Please help us by filling out the questionnaire, so together we can make the entire catchment a better place for both people and wildlife. The information that you provide will be incorporated into the Ravensbourne Catchment Plan.
If you would like more information about this initiative, please visit the Thames 21 website.
