About this event

Tasks: natural flood management - leaky dam installation

The main activity of the day will involve building leaky dams of different sizes made out of timber from the woods that are fixed into position across streams. The dams help to slow down flood flows as water levels rise during heavy rainfall. Activities will include digging, sawing, post bashing, moving logs into position and fixing them in place. It’s quite physical work but we have lifting aids to help share the load and will have plenty of breaks and biscuits to keep energy levels up! Long sleeves, trousers and waterproofs are recommended. All other equipment will be provided and training given on the day.

There are a limited number of spaces available so you will need to book on to this session in advance.
