South East Rivers Trust

A range of activities so you can make the most of your visit to the river!

Visiting a river can be a great way of connecting with nature, learning about wildlife and just enjoying the outdoors. Here we have provided fun activities for you to complete during your visit.  None of our activities require that you get in the river and we recommend that you don’t.

Complete the Junior River Ranger Challenge!
