River Dipping for Invertebrates on the River Crane

Saturday 21 September 2019
10:30 to 12:00

WT Invertebrates

Come along to Crane Park Island beside the River Crane for a morning looking at the invertebrate life in the river. This is a morning to enjoy learning about the river and how local people are working together to improve the ecology of the river. We will meet at the Shot Tower before going on to Crane Park Island which is a London Wildlife Trust nature reserve.  Later on we may also walk along more of Crane Park and look at the river life if people are interested. Please come along in stout footwear – or wellingtons if you would like to join in with the invertebrate collection - and in clothing suitable for the weather on that day. Booking is essential as we need to know how many folk will attend.


This walk is one of the FORCE Family Challenge activities so bring your challenge card to collect your stamp !  For those who haven't signed up yet, just click here to join in and start collecting stamps for the FORCE Challenge water vole badge ! 


This event is organised by FORCE as part of a series of walks and talks along the River Crane and Duke of Northumberland's River and local area, and working with London Wildlife Trust. Due to safeguarding needs all children under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  We look forward to seeing you.
