Wetland advice and how you can help us

Our Water and Wetlands Officers can offer help and advice on a range of wetland-related matters, from identifying wetland species to providing guidance on designing a new garden pond.

- Ditch management and pollution control


Please contact us if there is a specific type of work or project regarding water that you would like to know more about.


From time to time we also need help with wetland monitoring projects including otter and water vole surveys. If you'd like to get involved with this sort of work please contact us.
