Are you a group of keen individuals and or families wanting to look after a chalk stream in your community? Then we can help. All you need is a bit of knowledge, some basic tools and the passion.
Our Monitoring Officer works closely with several community groups who need help and guidance as to where to start looking after their chalk stream, which may be through a village, town or a community outdoor space. We have lots of examples where there are active communities that arrange a few work days each year for volunteers to come out and clean up the habitat whilst also learning about the wildlife. It can be as simple as a litter pick, mowing a bank, planting riparian plants, to cutting back self setting alders and willow or raking silt from gravel.
We can help you start a calendar of annual community events and show you what to look for. For more information contact us.
