The Lambourn Project

A partnership between ARK and the RENEWAL Project

Working together ARK amd RENEWAL restored a stretch of the River Lambourn (a tributary of the Kennet) as it flows through Newbury.  

With guidance from ARK's experienced Project Officer, volunteers learnt new skills and played a key role improving the riverbank along a popular public reach of the river.  

During 2016 we ran 8 sessions of practical river restoration, a riverfly training workshop, trout nest identification morning and a water vole and otter spotting day.
