About

Help Thames21 establish what litter is in the Thames and how it gets there by becoming a citizen scientist! As a Thames River Watch volunteer, you will spend just a couple of hours each month to help us build a better picture of the health of the tidal Thames. In the process you will join a local group of volunteers and get out into nature on your doorstep.

This day-long training session will provide non-experts with the knowledge and tools to become a Thames River Watch surveyor. Click here to find out more about the Thames River Watch project.

The session will include:

  • An introduction to Thames River Watch
  • The story of London’s River
  • The tidal foreshore environment
  • How to undertake a litter survey of the Thames foreshore
  • How to report your findings

The session involves indoor learning and a practical session on the foreshore.
