Restoring River Habitat

‘Restore natural processes and connectivity of rivers and streams to improve habitat for all species’

Rivers and streams are highly variable, changing environments and no two sections of a river are ever the same. This variation provides the diversity that is necessary for the wildlife of the river to thrive. Welsh Dee Trust focuses on restoring the natural processes that generate these wide varieties of habitat. This will involve planting woodlands on the riverbank, pinning deadwood into the river, restoring floodplains and removing man-made barriers to fish migration. Through this work, we can improve the habitat and allow all river wildlife to thrive.
