The Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust are offering four separate free hands-on training days to give you the skills to carry out river habitat enhancement work, from Monday February 20th - Thursday February 23rd.

During the day-long workshop, you'll learn the tools and techniques to improve river habitat. We will concentrate on the skills associated with installing woody debris features such as deflectors and brash berms. The workshops are aimed at anyone working on rivers, from fishery managers to conservation volunteers. The aim is to give you the knowledge and techniques to be able to replicate what you have learnt to improve rivers elsewhere.

Equipment and materials will be provided, you will just need to wear suitable clothing and bring waders if you have them. For more information or to book your space contact David Johnson (Living Rivers Officer) by email: or call 01727 858901.
