Salmon Pastures – Volunteer Day with Angling Trust (must book)

27-03-24 10:00 - 13:00
Salmon Pastures
Address: Cannot determine address at this location.

Join the Don Catchment Rivers Trust and the Angling Trust as we help to clean up litter along the Five Weirs Walk at Salmon Pastures. 

We will be working along the north bank of the river – along the path, in the nature reserve, and hopefully in the river itself if the river levels allow for it. Those who are up for it will have the opportunity to go into the river using waders and help pull out the litter in the vegetation. This is a collaborative event between DCRT and the Angling Trust, as part of the Great British Spring Clean campaign (15-31st March). This campaign is ran by Keep Britain Tidy, helping to promote that ‘the environment belongs to everyone’. The Angling Trust have their own ongoing campaign, Anglers Against Litter, which looks at caring for our freshwater environments and protecting wildlife from the dangers of litter by taking 5 minutes at the end of every fishing session to pick up litter.


For this event, please book on via Eventbrite, even if you are an existing volunteer. All are welcome to attend, this will just help us gauge how much equipment we need. 

 

When: Wednesday 27th March 2024, 10am-1pm.

Where: We will be meeting the Five Weirs Walk gate to the east of Salmon Pastures. See Google pin here. There is free parking on Warren Street

    Back in October 2023, Stocksbridge weir was removed from the River Don as part of the effort to improve fish passage and overall river health. Next, there is some final adjustments needed on site. Bank erosion control has been identified to protect an access track and re-soiling and seeding of the upstream berm is needed after this was washed away during storm Babet. 

    Tasks include:

    • Soil and seed spreading
    • Barrowing
    • In-channel wading
    • Using handtools to install large woody debris as bank erosion
    • Litter picks

    We will provide all necessary equipment, refreshments and can also cover the cost of travel.

    location: Stocksbridge (Deepcar) weir, S35 7DA
    When: Thursday 23rd May.
    10am to 3pm with refreshment breaks (drinks and biscuits provided by DCRT), and a lunch break (please bring your own). 

    There are limited spaces available  so you’re interested in attending, please let Matt know via email:  [email protected]
