Citizen Science #LitterHeroes

Tuesday 17th March 2020: Coronavirus update from Northern Roots

Following the latest government advice, Northern Roots is postponing all volunteering, consultation & engagement opportunities that involve people gathering, effective from today. This means that our Citizen Science #Litterheroes events will not go ahead as advertised. The Great British Spring Clean campaign has been rescheduled to September 2020, so we hope to plan a fresh programme of events then.  When the situation changes, we’ll update accordingly. Please get in touch with us at any time at northern.roots@oldham.gov.uk

 

The Great British Spring Clean 2020 runs from March 20th to April 13th and is your chance to get involved in the UK’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign. Together, we can make a massive difference. All our individual actions can help to transform our country for the better, creating cleaner streets, parks and beaches, protecting our wildlife and, ultimately, stopping the tide of plastic that is doing so much damage to our oceans and marine life.

To celebrate and support the Great British Spring Clean 2020, Northern Roots has teamed up with some brilliant local Community Walk Leaders to host a series of Citizen Science #LitterHeroes events on Snipe Clough – and we need your help!

If you can spare half an hour to an hour on the dates below, come out for a walk, bring the kids, meet new people and help us clean up beautiful Snipe Clough. Our Citizen Science #LitterHeroes Walk Leaders will provide you with all the equipment you need, and help you record different kinds of litter and where litter hot spots accumulate.

Last year, more than 560,000 people took part in the Great British Spring Clean and this year the campaign is aiming to get 600,000 #LitterHeroes involved. Come down to Snipe Clough, get involved and help make a difference in your community.
