    The River Brent Needs You!

     Burnt Oak Brook

    Join the volunteering team and make a difference in your local community by improving the river for wildlife and for people. Come to learn some new skills and look after the River Brent.

    We will be cleaning-up and enhancing the river bed, banks and park area. The practical solutions will involve litter picking the surrounding environment and accessible in-channel areas.


    There will be many opportunities to volunteer which will be open anyone who wants to be part of river enhancement effort or to become a citizen scientist.

    We are also calling photographers, artists, beginners, experienced, and  all those with interest, we would like the event and surrounding environment captured through pictures and drawings.

    At the heart of the project is a series of river habitat and floodplain improvements along newly accessible river walks. This will be co-delivered with local communities through inspiring engagement, knowledge exchange and practical river repair workshops that are designed to develop skills and embed a greater appreciation of the natural environment, whilst building social networks within and between local groups. An important feature of this project is the build-up of knowledge and experiences, celebrating local and catchment-wide achievements through both science and arts experience, connecting and enhancing the value of individuals’ efforts both locally and nationally.

    The events will happen from 10.30am – 2.30pm on:

    11 March 2020

    28 March 2020
