There's no better way to get to know the River Lea than visiting it!
You can also join a group walk in one of the parks on the river's course.
If you prefer two wheels to two feet, use this Luton Cycle Map to plan your route along the Luton Lea.
If your local tributary is Houghton Brook, Sally's Woodside Link Nature Watch blog is a great source of information and news, particularly relating to the changes in nature during development works around Houghton Regis.
