Wilder Salmon Pastures – Community Volunteer Day (must book)

24-08-23 10:00 - 15:00

Join Don Catchment Rivers Trust for a volunteer day at Salmon Pastures. All abilities welcome!

If you would like to join our events and are new to the Trust, please email [email protected] to get signed up!

There are a limited number of spaces available so you will need to book on to sessions in advance.

Location: Salmon Pastures, Sheffield, S4 7DZ (a more precise meeting point will be sent once you’ve signed up to the event)

What to bring: We will provide all necessary equipment and refreshments. All you need to wear is appropriate outdoor clothing (waterproof, long sleeves and trousers) and sturdy shoes.

Tasks include: Felling/hinging small willow trees to provide cover for fish using hand tools. This task will involve entering the river channel in waders and making a cut in the tree that will fell it, whilst retaining an attachment at its base – much like hedge laying. All techniques will be explained at the beginning of the day as well as a health and safety talk.

Timings: 10am – 3pm (break 11.30am and 1pm)

Contact us: via email at [email protected]
