All equipment will be provided.

Outfall Safari on the River Crane – Training Session
Mar 24 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

In 2016, Citizen Crane ran the UK’s first “Outfall Safari”, whereby teams of volunteers walked the River Crane and assessed 235 outfalls for signs of pollution.  As a result, over a dozen polluting outfalls were cleaned up, and the technique has subsequently been adopted on rivers throughout London and elsewhere.

This Spring, the Safari will run again and volunteers are needed to help out.  Two training sessions are being run on 24th and 26th March, and more details are provided on the poster attached and in the links below.

Please share with others who may be interested in getting involved.  Council officers and other professionals would be very welcome to join.
