Yeading Brook Meadows: River Habitat Workshop - 10 September @ 10AM

The Wild Trout Trust are coming to Yeading Brook Meadows to run a free practical river habitat workshop focusing on improving urban stretches of river.  They will teach the use of tools and techniques for habitat improvement and management and will concentrate on the skills associated with installing woody debris features such as deflectors and brash berms.

The workshops are aimed at anyone with an interest in rivers, from fishery managers to conservation volunteers or riparian owners. The aim is to provide you with the knowledge and techniques to be able to replicate what you have learnt to improve rivers elsewhere.  All of this will be very good training for anyone who wants to participate in London Wildlife Trust's restoration of the Yeading Brook through Yeading Brook Meadows over the next year.

There are places for 20 people to attend the workshop.  Workshops will be weather conditions dependent so we may need to postpone the days at short notice if safety is a concern.

Please contact Tom White, London Wildlife Trust Conservation Officer, if you wish to attend:
