What is a Healthy River?, a talk by Charlotte Simmons covering the aspects of a river that are considered when deciding on if a river is healthy or not from the perspective of the Water framework Directive and what to look for in a healthy natural river.
A little more about Charlotte.. “I knew quite early on that I wanted to work in the countryside. I have worked for over 30 years in conservation from agri-environment work on the ground to project management and now I work for the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust, hosting a the Dales to Vale Rivers Network, the partnership of people and organisations working together across the Swale, Ure, Nidd, Ouse, Wiske, Foss and Wharfe.  I want to see healthy rivers with abundant wildlife, valued by communities.
