Love my River Project currently runs in the Northwich area, working with the community to raise awareness of local rivers and watercourses and involve people in looking after them.
Local volunteers help to investigate the condition of the river and take part in practical action to improve them. This includes walkover surveys which identify particular problems, citizen science including chemical, physical and biological testing on water quality to support the Environment Agency and conservation work, and practical action such as tree planting, litter picks, and controlling invasive non-native species.
In 2018/19 the Love My River Project is expanding into the Nantwich area, and developing partnerships, projects and funding proposals in the area, with further volunteering and student opportunities.
