Here’s 5 ways that we work to reduce the effects of climate change
As trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are causing global heating.
Reducing the risk of flooding
We use natural materials to help slow the flow of water and sediment into the river to reduce the risk of flooding during heavy rainfall and extreme weather conditions.
Our River School project gives children the chance to connect with the outdoors and understand why we need to look after it
As water temperatures rise fish need to eat more food. The river can only provide so much food so we need to ensure that the population can spread out and access all of the river. Fish Passes ensure that fish can get over man-made obstacles such as weirs to move up-river.
Reducing pollution from farming
As climate change causes more extreme weather conditions, there’s more run-off from farms which washes pollutants into the watercourse – we work with farmers to reduce their pollution.
