Bringing Rivers to The Poly

A Café Sci event hosted by Cornwall Science Community.

Join the Westcountry Rivers Trust (WRT), an environmental charity putting science at the heart of its river conservation in Cornwall for an evening of conversation and films.

From source to sea, clean, flowing rivers support the resilience of their surroundings - ecosystems, wildlife, people and their livelihoods. Across a variety of projects, WRT is tackling river-related challenges to ensure freshwater habitats, and all who depend on them, can thrive.

Come along to learn about some of the charity’s projects restoring and protecting the county’s rivers and wildlife, and how being a citizen scientist with the charity makes a big impact for the short and long-term health of the waterways being monitored. Plus, be among the first to see its short new film ‘Science, Citizens and a Love of Westcountry Rivers’, showcasing the charity’s river guardians of the region.

This session comes to Falmouth as a part of the ‘Bringing Rivers to You’ campaign, where WRT is taking the joys and stories of local rivers into bustling town centres to reconnect communities with their waterways.
