About Welsh Dee Trust
A member of the wider Rivers Trust movement, Welsh Dee Trust is a small independent charity working to restore the brooks, streams and rivers of the Dee catchment for both wildlife and people. In 2020 the Welsh Dee Trust embarked on an exciting period of growth, identifying five clear programmes of work to pursue. This role is for our It Shouldn’t Be In The Dee programme which aims to engage and empower communities to care for their local water environment.
The intern will support Welsh Dee Trust staff in the delivery of the It Shouldn’t Be In The Dee programme. This will involve promoting and hosting volunteer events (e.g., litter picks and training), education events (e.g., stands at public events, walks and public talks) and citizen science activities (e.g., monitoring pollution). There will also be the opportunity to support the delivery of our Restoring River Habitat and Water Wise Farming programmes, giving a broad range of experience across the whole organisation. This role is funded as part of the Dee Blue Recovery project and will be working on the River Dee catchment in West Cheshire.
