This is an interactive panel session aimed at introducing Natural Flood Management and the role of volunteers.
Join Dr Debbie Coldwell, Natural Flood Management Officer from the Don Catchment River Trust and Heather Hunt a small woodland owner who, along with Friends of Newfield Spring Wood, has been working with Debbie to "...enhance biodiversity, build resilience to climate stress at the same time as creating opportunities for education, nature connection and well being, particularly for those communities with little access to wild spaces." https://dcrt.org.uk
And join Christina Hooley, Coordinator for Treesponsibility, a not-for-profit community group based in the Upper Calder Valley, West Yorkshire. Established in 1998, they campaign and educate on the need for action on climate change. http://www.treesponsibility.com
