Help Save Our Rivers – Become a Water Ambassador

Our rivers are under threat – they are drying up and disappearing across the Colne Valley and beyond and we really need your help! This is not good news for wildlife and paints a grim future of a dry river valley for us all but we can make a massive difference by working together.

We have an exciting, FREE new programme called Water Ambassadors to explore how our daily water usage is affecting our rivers and wildlife and what we can do to stop our rivers drying up.

This short online series of information and activities will take you on an interesting journey over 2 hours (which you can start and stop at your leisure) where you will learn about;

  • Where our water comes from
  • Where we use the most water
  • The real threat to our local rivers
  • River wildlife and its importance balance for biodiversity
  • How to make positive changes to save water, money and help wildlife
