Bank stabilisation work party Aylesbury
May 2 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Dogs are a regular visitor to the River Thame but when off the lead can disturb breeding birds and wildlife but can also damage river banks. When dogs consistently enter rivers at regular points along a river bank they can cause erosion and sediment input. Excess sediment entering watercourses can cause the smothering of fish eggs and invertebrates.
In May along the Thame in Aylesbury we have plans to stabilise some of these access points to reduce further damage and erosion occurring to the river bank. We appreciate that dogs like to splash around and cool off in the river on hot days so we have also planned to create formal access points where dogs can enter the river safely and have fun but also have a reduced impact on the river bank.
