A talk on the River of Life project will launch this year's Science Exchange programme, on Tuesday 20th January, 7 pm for 7.30pm, at Wallingford School Library

Lizzie Rhymes, Environment Agency & Chris Parker, Earth Trust, will explain how this joint re-wilding project is creating new wetland habitats along the River Thames.

Avoiding any impacts on navigation, they have introduced backwaters to feed new wetland habitats on the south bank of the Thames for approximately 2.5 kilometres. In June 2014, the River of Life was the joint recipient of the Best Practice Award for Practical Nature Conservation at the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management.

Lizzie & Chris will talk about the challenges of digging wetland habitats, the results to date, plans for the future and the environment and social benefits this project is providing.

Light refreshments are available from 7 pm, and the event is free to attend.

Science Exchange Wallingford is part of the nationwide Café Scientifique network.
