Developing people’s skills through training will not only help us by providing us with skilled volunteers but it will also help to create a sense of public responsibility and ownership of the river and the environment.
Our training will be accessible to all those who have a passion for rivers and wildlife and are willing to learn!
The Ribble Life Together project will enable us to run numerous workshops throughout the year training people to carry out barrier, otter, riverfly, and walkover and habitat surveys.
Alongside this we will also deliver specialist training in areas such as diffuse pollution and farm advice and facilitation. This will be targeted at countryside and agriculture students from local colleges, farmers and young farmers and environmental professionals.
This training will help fill the gap in knowledge that exists in the knowledge of professionals regarding the agricultural business and the gap that exists in the knowledge or agriculture professionals regarding the impacts of land management!
