Planting Sessions Friday 13th and Saturday 14th Dec

Thames21 will be hosting 2 planting events. We are going to be planting sedges rushes and a variety of other colourful species on the Gurnell side of the park. Starting location is going to be the Perivale Park Golf Course Café. Below are the links for the event and  a poster for the days as well. We are going to be working around the pond areas rather than the steeper banks of the Brent, making these very family friendly events. As always, all equipment will be provided and under 16’s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided. Please pass on the details to anyone who you believe would like to help conserve their local river.

Riverfly Monitoring on your local river

Thames21 have been coordinating a monitoring programme on the Brent around the Ealing area. Thank you to all of the volunteers who have learnt the skills and undertaken surveys! We use invertebrates found in the river as an indicator of the water quality and general health of the river. After having a glance at the results in the pdf’s, follow this link to have a greater understanding of what the results mean:http://www.riverflies.org/rp-riverfly-monitoring-initiative

  1. Great work everyones.
    I’ll publicise the planting events through my social media and networks too.
    I’m signing up to get regular updates so I can share your news and hopefully recruit interest and volunteers for you too.
