DCRT’s community engagement team have been busy this week. With schools being back after their summer holidays we’ve taken a lot of bookings for our River Guardians program to ease them back into the year with a bit of river fun. We had 123 individuals in total out from Gerard’s Primary, Wybourne Primary and Swallownest Beavers where we did a bit of river dipping, talked about what animals live in the River Don, reasons why salmon have been absent from the River Don for 200 years (and why they’re coming back!) and how to stay safe near waterways.
Here’s a collage of drawings from pupils at St. Gerard’s detailing ‘their favourite thing from the day’.
If you’d like a school that you know of to be involved with our FREE River Guardians program please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01302 796173.
