Help us to slow the flow this winter…

One of several planned leaky barrier sites at Heggs Farm

On Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th November we will be installing leaky barriers as a part of the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust’s ‘Arkengarthdale Natural Flood Management’ project.

Led by Rhiannon O’Connell from the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust, we’ll use tools and bits of trees to create leaky barriers in overland flow pathways that will help slow and store flood waters.

This is the first of a variety of Natural Flood Management interventions that will be coming to the cluster, each providing multiple benefits of water management and habitat creation.

If you would like to be involved, we have 5 volunteering spaces available.

The day’s work will require a good level of physical strength. Wellies, waterproofs and a pack lunch are recommended, and the usual tea, coffee etc will be provided.

For further info and to sign-up, please email
NB Times, meeting location etc will be provided once your place is confirmed.

We hope to see you there!
