River Buffs

Are you or would you like to be a ‘River Buff’?

A range of activities are taking place on the River Lyd at Sydenham. If you are passionate about our rivers, would like to learn more, or help monitor and improve them, then drop us a line!

We can offer training in the following areas;

  • Riverfly Partnership
  • Water Quality Monitoring
  • Moving Water Safety Training
  • River Improvement Surveys
  • Ecological surveys
  • River Restoration Techniques
  • Sustainability & environental good practice

By working with local communities, businesses and other environmental organisations, we work to bring our lost and forgotten rivers back to life. So that they can once again play a vital role in all of our lives.

If you would like to get involved you can email [email protected] or even join our River Buffs Facebook group…
