About the training:
The structure of this one-day course will involve a short classroom session followed by a visit to the river to see how to put what you’ve learned into practise. You’ll learn such things as how to place woody debris in the channel allowing the river to create microhabitats for spawning fish and invertebrates. This course is aimed at beginners and volunteers working in river management as well as anyone wanting to improve their knowledge. 

Training is free and all are welcome but please note that volunteers and staff to DCRT and relevant organisation will be given priority. To sign up please download a volunteer training booking form here

    As it is coming up to the summer months, we will be looking at doing some invasive species management along the river banks throughout the catchment. This involves the identification and removal of plant species such as Himalayan Balsam that are not native to the UK, and identification of Giant Hogweed as it’s sap can be dangerous to our skin. The sap reduces the photosensitivity of our skin, making us more vulnerable to sever sunburns. It is important we learn about these different species for when we are out doing practical work.
