Learn river habitat skills...

Four free hand-on training days on the organised by Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust to give you the skills to carry out river habitat enhancement work.

During the day-long workshop, you'll learn the tools and techniques to improve river habitat.  We will concentrate on the skills associated with installing woody debris features such as deflectors and brash berms.  

The workshops are aimed at anyone working on rivers, from fishery managers to conservation volunteers.  The aim is to give you the knowledge and techniques to be able to replicate what you have learnt to improve rivers elsewhere.

Equipment and materials will be provided.  You will need to wear suitable clothing and bring waders if you have them.

Join us for one or all days.  Work will be carried out on the River Stort near HMWT's Rye Meads nature reserve.

Booking essential - email David Johnson (Living Rivers Officer) on 01727-858901 ext 245 or email.
