Don't Rubbish Deptford Creek!

28th April 2023


This spring and summer we have organised new activities for families and people passionate about freshwaters and Creek. From cleaning the river, water sampling to new family learning sessions. The project aims to improve the ecology of Deptford Creek through engaging the local community in a series of river conservation events. Change will be created by practical conservation in Deptford Creek but also through education of participants bringing awareness of the river and its challenges. The project will be run along the London Rivers Week events.
