Torkington Park

Join us in installing leaky dams (human beavers) as a natural flood management scheme around Stockport to help control water flow.

To sign up for this event please register via the Eventbrite link here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/906909589997?aff=oddtdtcreato

We will dig into the river banks, move logs, and install posts to create leaky dams. This is a physical activity that requires you to be physically fit enough to lift and carry 20kg safely.

This is a weather-dependent activity (if it's snowing or icey). Work boots/ wellies are required, as are water bottles, suitable clothing, and lunch; other PPE items will be provided.

There are facilities on-site and a café nearby which you are more than welcome to use.
