Tyne and Wear River Habitat Workshops

10th March 2023 10am to 3pm

Interested in river habitat, why not come along to a two site habitat workshop? This event is open to all, but primarily aimed at participants from the Tyne and Wear catchments. The day will be hosted by the Wild Trout Trust and local Environment Agency fisheries team, funded through their Fisheries Improvement Programme.

Beginning on the lower River Derwent, near Derwenthaugh, we’ll look at how woody material can facilitate natural river habitat improvement and channel recovery. The second part will involve a demonstration of simple habitat enhancement techniques at a site on Houghwell Burn. Use of the sites is courtesy of Gateshead Council and Durham County Council.

If you would like to attend, please book a place via email gpedley@wildtrout.org. Bookings will be on a first come first served basis.
