Nether Wasdale

Planting by the River Irt

 

Becca from the Rivers' Trust came to the school and gave us lots of information about our rivers and how we can help protect them.

We learned lots about all the creatures that live in this habitat, including the various fish that are native to the locality.

We headed off in the minibuses to Nether Wasdale. Becca met us by the River Irt.

Then the work began to plant woodrushes to help maintain and improve the riverbank .

We had to space out 170 plants along the margin of the river!

Before we set off to return to school, we had just enough time for a game of "Pooh-Sticks"!
