Bank stabilisation work party Aylesbury

2nd May 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

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…
