Get Involved

Come and help us and experience for yourself the valuable work we do in the county

 

Survey And Monitoring:

Regular training events are put on for our volunteers, to enable them to improve their wildlife identification skills and get involved in projects to monitor our river wildlife.

 

Invasive Species Control:

Plants like Himalayan balsam can really damage the diversity of our riverbanks, and regular ‘balsam bashes’ are organised throughout the summer months. Mink monitoring rafts also need to be checked for signs of this invasive, non-native predator of water voles and water birds.

 

Habitat Enhancement:

Help to maintain our rivers by joining work parties to remove scrub from the waterside. This promotes the growth of low bank-side and in-stream vegetation that water voles need.

 

Other Events:

Other events include making and erecting bird and bat boxes, hedge-laying and preventing riverbank erosion.
