More than 60 people turned up for Thames21's Waterway Wildlife Discovery Day at Three Mills Island in Bromley-by-Bow on Thursday.
Children dipped into the Lea and examined their findings as well as looking at fish with an underwater camera.
Thames21 spokesman James Aldous said: "This is not normally the type of thing we do but we'll be doing much more of it in the future.
