Living with water in the world of climate change, with a focus on Barnes

Tuesday 30th May, 7pm

Mike Hildesley, chair of Barnes Common, introduces the work of this independent charity to preserve the ecology of Beverley Brook and the Leg o’ Mutton reservoir, and gives us an opportunity to learn about the history of the reservoir, journey down the course of Beverley Brook, and be introduced to the wildlife dependent on these sites.

Mike will present some of the current threats to these environments e.g. impacts of water quality, urbanisation as well as the flood and drought risks of climate change. He will also present opportunities to combat these threats through a diverse range of projects local people are invited to involved in.

Doors open 6.30pm and refreshments will be on sale before the talk, which will last approximately one hour. Admission to the talk is free for members of Chiswick Pier Trust and £5 for non-members. Limited tickets will be available on the day so to be sure of your place do pre-book here.
