Keeping the Rivers Flowing in the Colne Valley
Keep Colne Valley Rivers flowing video was created by young people at Drip Drop Summer School where we explored the topic of water awareness and conservation in Colne Valley Regional Park. The summer school was part of the Landscape Partnership Project – Keeping the Rivers Flowing.
The Colne Valley Regional Park is the first substantial taste of countryside to the west of London covering 43 square miles the landscape is a mix of bustling towns, green spaces and waterways. The park hosts an interwoven network of rivers and canals stretching 200km2 as well as over 60 lakes.
Water awareness and conservation is incredibly important in Colne Valley. The water we use at home comes from underground sources called aquifers which provide water for rivers and other water bodies as well as for our homes. Thus the more water we use at home means there is less for local rivers and wildlife. Can you save water and save your local rivers? Check out this video to find out more.
