- Governance, roles and responsibilities across key stakeholders
- Urban Ecosystem Service Benefits
- Key Datasets
- SuDS, Misconnections and Pollution Monitoring
- Targeting and Design of Interventions
- A lunchtime discussion session with Local Authorities and other key stakeholders.
Call of Nature - Treasure Hunt
Buried below a house in the Alt/Crossens catchment is treasure...but will it be your house?
Come along to any event for the 'Call of Nature' project to take part in this fun treasure hunt. It is really easy to play and completely free! All you have to do is mark on our map where you live (within the Alt/Crossens catchment) with a numbered dot. We will pick a number at random and the person at that house will win the treasure!
The draw will take place at the end of March.
The first event is at Martin Mere Wetland Centre on Monday 13th February.
Keep checking the Mersey Rivers Trust's website, Facebook page and Twitter page for dates and information on upcoming events.
