Learn about the history of the river Freshney and join the litter-picking #OFSH walk with duck feeding and nature i-spy on the way!

Spend the afternoon emersed in nature and wildlife on a walk with the Canoe River Cleaner on the final day of the #OFSH Our Future Starts Here programme for 2023.

You'll discover a brief history of the Freshney as well as an overview of the wildlife resident there and a nature i-spy for the kids (and adults). Give back to nature afterwards by joining in with a litter pick, ending up at Grimsby in Bloom for a cuppa.
