Cumbrian river habitat workshop

Our Conservation Officer in the farthest north, Gareth Pedley, recently ran a two day workshop on bank protection and habitat improvement on the River Derwent in Cumbria; this was on behalf of the Derwent riparian owners and the Environment Agency.

The days were well attended by staff from organisations like Natural England and the rivers trusts, and there was considerable interest as well from local individuals.

Overall, the workshop was very productive and we’d like to thank everyone who turned up and got stuck in, particularly the EA and National Trust staff who sourced materials and provided technical support.
