Rea Valley Conservation Group
The River Rea rises in the Waseley Hills just South West of Birmingham and
joins the river Tame at Spaghetti Junction just north of Birmingham City Centre.
The Rea Valley Conservation Group was formed in 1988 with the purpose of
conserving the River Rea Valley for recreation and nature preservation.
The Route 5 Cycle Route runs most of its length and the Group currently
promotes walking, cycling and jogging along the river and its tributaries.
The Group manages a small nature reserve at Coleys Lane, Northfield along
the river banks. Litter picks are organised in conjunction with the Birmingham Ranger Service.
A series of talks and walks are arranged each year.
