Severn Estuary “Big Beach Clean”

#SpruceUpTheSevern

 

Would you like to be involved in the Severn Estuary Big Beach Clean weekend taking place on 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th of September?

As part of the Natural Resources Wales funded Discover the Severn project we are working together with as many beach cleaners as possible to clean up the shores all around the Severn Estuary. We are joining forces with the Marine Conservation SocietyKeep Wales Tidy, and Litter Free Coast and Sea Somerset to coordinate an estuary wide clean up as part of their larger national campaigns.

Please see the map below to find out where your nearest beach clean is taking place. (Please note we will update this map regularly.) If you would like to keep up to date with Severn Estuary events and local news please click here.
