Restoring England’s threatened chalk streams @ Blewbury Manor Barn | Blewbury | England | United Kingdom

Paul St. Pierre of the Environment Agency will talk about work done to restore chalkland rivers, with particular reference to the Kennet and Lambourn valleys. Chalk streams are a unique and rare habitat, typified by crystal clear waters and abundant wildlife. Southern England has the highest concentration of these rivers in the world. However, in recent decades they have deteriorated due to man’s involvement and climate change. Hear how we are restoring these natural wonders back to their full glory! Tickets £6.00 (including wine & nibbles) from Blewbury Post Office, or on the door if not sold out. Profits will be donated to Water Aid.
