Hertfordshire River Habitat Workshops this spring

The WTT will again be running a series of River Habitat Workshops in association with the Environment Agency and Affinity Water. They will take place on the River Colne and its tributaries in Hertfordshire this spring — dates and locations to be advised.

River Habitat Workshops are one day practical working sessions for groups of up to 20 people. The aim is to improve habitat on a short stretch of river whilst teaching volunteers the basic techniques of habitat management and habitat improvement. River fly monitoring and wider issues such as abstraction are also covered whilst enjoying a well-earned sandwich on the river bank. Click here for information on the workshops held last year.
These are enjoyable, hardworking sessions so you need to be reasonably active and be prepared to get stuck into practical work. No prior experience or equipment is required, and they are free and open to all.
