A major project is underway to encourage wildlife along the River Mimram as it passes between Welwyn and Welwyn Garden City.

Thanks to cooperation between Affinity Water, the Environment Agency, Sherrardswood School and the Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, the Mimram as it passes through school grounds is being improved for water voles, trout, kingfishers, crayfish, and even otters.
