PROTECTING THE RIVER WEY IN ALTON: TALK AND DISCUSSION BY GLEN SKELTON, SURREY WILDLIFE TRUST
Zoom event – email firstname.lastname@example.org for the link.
Glen Skelton is the Wetland Landscapes Officer at Surrey Wildlife Trust. For the past 7 years he has been supporting local communities and groups across the River Wey catchment to monitor the health of their local river and apply practical measures to restore degraded stretches. In this talk he will look in detail at the River Wey as it runs through Alton, why this is a particularly important stretch of river and highlight some of the issues and opportunities for restoring our river to something we can be proud of.
Spring-fed rivers like the Wey in Alton are seriously threatened by climate change. Glen will suggest what we all can all do to protect this magnificent resource.
