'THAMES RIVER WATCH'

Thames 21 are looking for individual volunteers as well as people from community groups, schools and riverside businesses along the tidal Thames to join their citizen science volunteer team.
As a Thames River Watch volunteer you will spend just a couple of hours each month to help them build a better picture of the health of the tidal Thames.
