Rivers Week 2022

19th September 2022 - 25th September 2022

We’re launching our very first, Rivers Week 2002! A weeklong series of community-run events culminating on World Rivers Day (25th September) to create awareness and appreciation of our rivers and streams by bringing together communities across the catchment.

Want to get involved? We need local groups to organise events during the week to celebrate their local water courses.

Here are some ideas for how you can get involved:

  • Lead a nature walk
  • Host an art exhibition fundraiser
  • Teach the public how to identify wildlife (Riverflies, wading birds, wetland plants)
  • Survey your waterways for signs of wildlife, like otters or water voles
  • Coordinate a litter pick along your local stream

If you’re interested in hosting an event, we would love to discuss your ideas. Please contact Chelsea our Project Officer at chelsea@riverthame.org
