Action for the River Kennet

Action for the River Kennet works to conserve, protect and enhance the River Kennet and its tributaries, at the same time as providing opportunities for people to enjoy and learn about the river.

The River Kennet is one of England's finest chalk streams, but it is under pressure from abstraction, pollution and population growth. We aim to ensure the survival of the river's distinct chalkstream ecosystem through a combintaion of direct work on the river, and education and outreach to the community. We run habitat restoration projects, practical volunteering work, classroom education, field studies and open days.
