South East Rivers Trust (& the Wandle 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 it is our recommendation that you enjoy the river from the river’s edge.

Complete the Junior River Ranger Challenge!

A Junior River Ranger, is someone who recognises that rivers are important for wildlife and people.  A Junior River Ranger respects the environment whenever they visit to ensure the river continues to be a nice place for people and wildlife.

To become a Junior River Ranger, you need to do two things: become river friendly and get out and enjoy the river.  Become more river friendly by completing one of the green activities below and enjoy the river by completing two of the blue activities below.  Take photos of each activity and fill out the form at the bottom of the page, listing which activities you have completed.  You will be given a badge and certificate that you can show off to your friends and family. Plus, your photos could feature on our website!
