Creek Know-how - Saturday 21st May 2022
May 21st, 10am-1pm
Developing on our popular weekend walks, this activity features in-depth information about tides, the local context, and more!
Get to know your local area even better! Creek Know-how aims to provide further opportunity for understanding the local context and help people to interact with Deptford Creek more.
It includes a short presentation about tides and how they have influenced the development of the locality, before we head into Deptford Creek for a 1-hour walk. There will be time for refreshments and discussion to finish. This activity is great for anyone aged 14 or above.
You will explore:
- The local context and the changes in and around Deptford Creek over time
- Interpreting and using tidal data, and gaining first hand experience of tidal rivers
- Interacting safely with wild spaces by assessing and managing risk
- Using observation to get to know wild spaces better
Part of this course is classroom based and part includes a river walk at low tide. Please wear outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather conditions on the day – we will provide light raincoats and waders for going into the Creek.
