Wear Rivers Trust Talk – 28th November at 8.00pm

8 Oct

Steve Hudson from the Wear Rivers Trust is coming along to give us a talk about their work including the River Fly Monitoring Scheme and discuss how we can get involved in supporting and improving our rivers.
Should be an interesting evening with the opportunity to learn more about what the Trust does and find out more about our local rivers.

The mission of the Wear Rivers Trust is to conserve, protect, rehabilitate and improve the landscape and watercourses of the whole River Wear catchment, from the watershed to the estuarine and adjacent coastal areas, through involving individuals, local communities, government agencies and public bodies with proactive improvement works and monitoring, and by increasing awareness and understanding of the environmental factors that influence the river and its associated wildlife, whilst helping to promote the river as a recreational feature for the enjoyment of all.

The Trust is a member of the The Rivers Trust (formerly The Association of River Trusts) and works with the local community throughout the catchment of the Wear from the source in Upper Weardale to the coast to conserve, protect, restore and improve the rivers and streams of the catchment.

A key aim of the Trust is to raise awareness of the value of the River Wear, including its flora, fauna, social and economic benefits, and to help people understand the need for conservation and restoration, as well as to promote exploration and enjoyment of this precious resource.
