3. Adopt the Ash

Theme: Public education


  • Increase public appreciation of and engagement with the river

Project description

This project aims to increase local children's interest in their local river environment.

We hope to engage children from Widford Primary School (and their families) with the river, increase their understanding of it and their participation in its conservation.  This could be via invertebrate dipping activities, talks, field trips to the river, and studying the river during  curriculum topics such as geography, science, art and writing.


Project lead: Widford Parish Council & Widford Primary School
