Trout in the Town
Trout in the Town Urban River Toolkit: Inspiration and guidance for mending your urban river
Available from Amazon £15.99
Wild trout and many other species are coming back to city streams after centuries of abuse. But these recovering ecosystems still need all the help we can give them. That’s why the Wild Trout Trust’s Trout in the Town programme is here, to help local communities look after their rivers in towns and cities across the UK. Now, based on nearly 20 years of practical experience, we’ve built this Trout in the Town Urban River Toolkit, with lots of empowering advice for anyone who wants to care for their local waterway. The Toolkit includes tried and tested guidance on:
•Understanding urban rivers and their surroundings
•Organising river clean-ups and other events
•Funding and fundraising
•Practical aspects of running an urban river group
•Exciting project ideas
•Case studies from successful Trout in the Town groups
And much, much more…In short, it’s all about inspiring people to take responsibility for the overlooked and under-appreciated streams and rivers close to where they live.
