Wellies at the ready — Thames21 wants you to get involved with the first ever Big Count.

The event marks the end of the first year of citizen science project Thames River Watch. Over the past 12 months, a fleet of volunteers have been out testing the water of the tidal Thames, from the Estuary to Teddington, providing unique, invaluable data about the health of the river.

To get involved with the Big Count — collecting and counting litter from the Thames Foreshore — just show up to one of these events and be prepared to get stuck in:

No experience is required and all protective equipment will be provided although we recommend you wear old clothes as you're 100% going to get muddy. We did and we'll be mucking in again at the Richmond bit of the event.

Find our more about Thames River Watch and how to get involved at the Thames21 website.
