LCSP are promoting the RiverCare initiative to communities in our project area, as it empowers local residents to take ownership of their local watercourse, keeping them free of litter and encroaching vegetation, to ensure that they are the pleasant, beautiful environments that they should be for people and wildlife.
LCSP have helped to set up a RiverCare group in Horncastle and there are now several groups in Lincolnshire. If you are interested in helping out here's a few useful links;
