Friends of Henllys Local Nature Reserve are joining in with Cleaner Coasts Week 2013 with a stream clean up on Sat 18th May at 10am. We are meeting on the reserve's car park, just off Birch Grove, NP44 6EP.
What do we have to do with the coast? Well, the water which passes through the Henllys Local Nature Reserve ends up in the sea, some 16 miles downstream from us after passing along the Nant y Milwr, Dowlais Brook, Afon Llwd and finally River Usk, passing by several CCW events which are taking place in Newport. So even though we are not on the coast itself, we are doing our bit to help clean up our coast.
You are more than welcome to join in with us. Please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org and just bring wellies and gloves. All other equipment will be provided.
The trail of litter from the streams that pass through Henllys LNR to sea water is shown in the map below, you may have to zoom out a bit.
