Volunteer Today

What we do at Welsh Dee Trust is making a real difference to the River Dee, benefitting its wildlife.

Our volunteers are vital, carrying out practical tasks that improve habitat and make the river a better place to be. If you want to get outdoors and help to restore the River Dee, sign up to our volunteer mailing list to be the first in the know. If you’re under 18, please ask your parent or guardian to contact us on your behalf.

There is plenty to do—from habitat creation and river clean-ups, to helping us monitor invertebrates such as riverflies, and electro-fishing to monitor salmon and trout populations. You could also volunteer at one of our education events or even become one of our valuable trustees.

The Welsh Dee Trust run a volunteer program which I have found to be extremely valuable and would recommend to anyone who is interested in looking after their environment.

You get to meet new people, learn new skills from the experts and have fun in the fresh air. My highlight would be tree planting along my local stretch of river, where my family and I walk regularly.

Knowing that I have contributed to the health of my local environment and being in a position to regularly observe the growth of the trees that I planted has given me a tremendous feeling of wellbeing and I am proud to have taken part.
