Winter Talk 2018 Event

Winter Talk 2018

13th February 2018 from 7.30pm

London Scottish Golf Club, Windmill Enclosure SW19 5NQ

The South East Rivers Trust (SERT) have been working to enhance the biodiversity on the Beverley Brook in Richmond Park.  This project has successfully enhanced over 600m of channel through the use of fencing to prevent deer access, erection of river gates, the introduction of significant quantities of Large Woody Material (LWM), channel narrowing, introduction of meanders, bank regrading, creation of fish refuges and an access point. Volunteers helped with planting of marginal plants and trees.

Now SERT are exploring the potential to see if a similar programme of restoration work can be made to the Brook where it flows through Wimbledon Common. 

Toby Hull, Senior Project Officer at SERT, is joining us to talk about the work they have completed in Richmond Park and the success they have had in restoring natural processes which enable the river to ‘self-heal’, allowing the Beverley Brook to become a functioning riverine ecosystem once again.
