Creek Know - How - Saturday 31st July 2021
NEW ONE DAY COURSE - JOIN OUR VOLUNTEER TEAM
Find out more about your river and its tides
Developed with our partners Tideway this course lets you learn about Deptford Creek and the tidal environment as you prepare to be an assistant volunteer low-tide walk guide with our team. Or you just want to learn!
We explore risk assessment and interpreting tidal data that will help you gain a fuller, practical understanding of the tidal river.
Delivered by experienced staff from our conservation and education teams, we explore how to safely interact with a wild river and what to consider before visiting a tidal area like the Thames and in particular Deptford Creek.
Creek Know-How is a one day introduction to the physical environment of Deptford Creek and the first step towards becoming an assistant volunteer low-tide guide.
