Do you enjoy a stroll along the river?  Do you care about the health of your local rivers? Can you help to protect your local rivers?

The Colne Valley Regional Park’s river network extends over Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hillingdon, Surrey and Berkshire. It is an extremely wide area that includes a diverse range of landscapes, habitats and communities, which is why your help is needed to survey and conserve all of these watercourses.

Many of you visit your local waterways on a regular basis, going for a stroll, meeting your friends and family for a coffee, walking your dog or watching wildlife. During your visits we would like your help to keep an eye on the health of your local river, and let us know what you find.

Each river walk is unique for each volunteer, matching people up with their local area and stretch of river and every volunteer will be trained and fully supported by the Landscape Partnership Scheme every step of the way.

If this is of interest to you please join us for our River Walk training to find out more.

Topics will include:

  • River feature and structures
  • Water quality
  • Wildlife Sightings
  • Invasive Species
  • Risk Assessment
