NEW ONE DAY COURSE 

Find out more about your river and its tides - Book your space!

Developed with our partners Tideway this course lets you learn about Deptford Creek and the tidal environment. It's also a great chance to learn the basics for being a volunteer river guide with us! 

We'll introduce you to the risks involved and how to assess them as you learn to interpret tidal data that will help you understand the tidal river.

Delivered by 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. Our Creek is the only one where you can safely wade onto the river bed and glimpse the abundant wildlife it supports.

This course is great for anyone aged 14 or above.

We will explore:

• The local environment as we get onto the river 

• Facilitating outdoor activities

• Interacting safely with wild spaces

• Assessing and managing risk

• Planning activities for groups of people

• Interpreting and using tidal data

• Volunteering with Creekside Discovery Centre

Young people do not need to be accompanied by an adult. The training course runs from 10am to 3pm, with breaks for refreshments and lunch. Light refreshments are provided, please bring lunch with you on the day. Please wear outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather conditions on the day – we will provide light raincoats and waders for going into the Creek.
