13th June – Cressage to Ironbridge – Sure to finish with running the rapids for those that enjoy that sort of thing!

Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s ‘Love Your magnificent Severn 2018’ tour – the big litter grab.

We will be linking to the marine plastics campaign and will be litter picking from canoe – we are also inspiring Shropshire Wildlife Trust branches to do their own litter pick on a stretch of water near to them. We have teamed up with Marine Conservation Society and will be recording what we collect to feed into their data sets. This will help us understand what plastic comes from where in the marine environment – the best evidence suggests that 80% of marine waste enters via rivers.

We will also be reusing plastic bottles to make a completely recycled canoe, just like this! Telford Canoe Club Members would be very welcome to join us on the tour, get in touch with Luke Neal River Projects Officer, 01743 284 275; LukeN@ShropshireWildlifeTrust.org.uk
