Slough goes wild

Slough Goes Wild launch event

The “Saving the Salt Hill Stream” project, run by WWT (Wildfowl & Wetland Trust), is working with local people, community groups and schools in Slough to improve the Salt Hill stream and its surroundings to create a cleaner, healthier watercourse that the whole of Slough can be proud of.

Working in partnership with Slough Borough Council’s Parks Team, Young People’s Service and Slough Youth Parliament, WWT is running a Photographic Competition, which aims to get people outside, exploring their environment and celebrating Slough’s local waterways and wildlife. The competition launches on the 1st March and you have until Friday 20th April 2018 to enter your photos.

To launch the “Slough Goes Wild” Photo Competition we are inviting local people to join us for an evening of fun and interactive activities whilst you learn more about wetlands!

Thursday 1st March 2018, 5:30 – 7:30pm
Venue: The Curve, William Street, Slough, SL1 1XY
