A chance to learn traditional skills

We use traditional techniques such as willow weaving to repair riverbanks and hedge laying to slow the flow of water and reduce the risk of flooding.

What other tasks do volunteers do?

  • Restoring riverbanks using traditional skills like willow weaving
  • Hedge laying to slow the flow of water
  • Tree planting to tackle climate change
  • River clean-ups to reduce plastic in rivers
  • Water quality monitoring
  • Tackling invasive species that out compete native species

How do I get started?

We use a monthly bulletin to let you know what tasks are coming up and you can come along to as many or as few as you like. To get started register as a volunteer here. Or contact us by email: info@tyneriverstrust.org
