The Urban River Toolkit was written by Wild Trout Trust experts Theo Pike and Dr Paul Gaskell, with funding from the Environment Agency. The new Urban River Toolkit contains 98 pages of practical advice for local people who want to help their river to recover from centuries of abuse (or simply being overlooked and under-appreciated in recent years), including:

  • Understanding urban rivers and their surroundings
  • Organising river cleanups and other events
  • Inspiring and motivating volunteers
  • Funding and fundraising
  • Practical aspects of running an urban river group
  • Exciting project ideas
  • Case studies from successful Trout in the Town groups
  • Getting your group accredited as an official Trout in the Town chapter
  • And much, much more…

In short, it’s full of inspiring, empowering advice for anyone who wants to start taking care of their local urban waterway.
