The Healthy Rivers : Healthy Communities Project aims to provide opportunities for people to use and enjoy the natural environment around the river, improve river habitat and health, and educate the community on how to protect rivers.

The project is funded by Natural Resources Wales’ Resilient Communities Fund and forms part of our River Skills progamme work. The  Natural Resources Wales’ Resilient Communities Fund grant programme focuses on building resilient communities by increasing community participation in nature to benefit health and well-being.

This project will focus on the River Clywedog in King's Mills and the surrounding area in Wrexham, activities in this project will include:

  • Volunteer sessions – litter picks, clean-ups, and practical habitat improvements
  • Activity sessions for families – crafts, bioblitzes, and river-dipping
  • Educational awareness
  • Wildlife surveying and ID sessions
  • And much more

We will be offering regular weekly volunteer sessions each Wednesday from 10am – 1pm with the opportunity to meet new people and enjoy the environment, help wildlife, and learn new skills.

No experience is needed to volunteer for this project, everyone is welcome. If you’d like to get involved and become a volunteer, please contact Hannah Taylor on 01978 757 524 / [email protected]
