South East Rivers Trust (& the Wandle Trust)

Project Kingfisher is our educational programme, designed to challenge children to learn about their local river and the role we can all play in protecting rivers for the future.  We are currently offering sessions in the southwest London area along the Hogsmill River, Beverley Brook and River Wandle.  

River Sessions now available for 2021/22!

There has never been a greater need for outdoor education – a chance for pupils to explore the natural world and experience things first hand rather than virtually.  

Project Kingfisher has developed ‘My Local River‘ sessions to provide that opportunity.  There are two types of session the Interactive Walk and Talk and the Full Session as outlined below.

Designed by a qualified teacher these sessions have science and geography curriculum links and relate to topics such as:  RiversFlowLiving Things and their Habitat.  

They provide the opportunity to explore the local area and make great outings for Eco-councils or other groups with an interest in environmental issues. The ‘My Local River’ session can be adapted for KS1 or KS2.
