HELP CARE FOR THE RIVER ESK - BECOME A 'GUARDIAN OF THE ESK'
Adopt a Stream has recruited ‘Guardians of the Esk’ who ensure that key areas of the catchment are being checked regularly and that information is collated and used to help us care for the catchment.
Through Adopt a Stream we hope that all the potential barriers to migratory fish sites on the Esk can be adopted, with volunteers ensuring the structures do not become blocked. If they do, the Catchment Partnership can be alerted and we can sort them out. We want to make sure the whole catchment is monitored to check for issues such as litter, and to build up a network of people monitoring the local wildlife. Collating information to see the 'big picture' of our river environment allows us to create a baseline of what is normal, and then we can use new information to continually assess the health of the river.
The monitoring programme is designed to suit everyone’s interests and fit within the time you can commit, so if you have a favourite walk, a regular fishing spot or simply visit the catchment now and again, then we would love for you to get involved.
If you might be interested in becoming one of our ‘Guardians of the Esk’ please contact Kate Bailey, our Catchment Partnership Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01439 772700 .
If you are part of a larger group such as a local wildlife club or angling club and you would like to take part, we are also able to come to one of your own meetings to introduce the scheme and provide further details. We look forward to hearing from you!
