Annual Community Rivers Day

Community rivers days showcase all of the work that is taking place to restore the Dreel Burn. Project partners come together annually to highlight and celebrate achievements in taking action, from poring over microscopes, counting caddis flies, to creating wetlands and installing leaky dams.

Previous examples include: bat watching, fungi identification, tree planting, learn to scythe, meadow planting and management, moth identification, removal of Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS).
