Healthy freshwater environments are critical for both people and wildlife and England’s rivers are facing a crisis. Sadly, freshwater wildlife is declining at a faster rate than in other habitats due to climate change, agricultural pollution and lack of effective planning controls. 

Come and hear what local writers have to say about the pressure on vital freshwater resources in our own backyard; it promises to be a fascinating evening.


Join Wild Writing Workshops at Poole Habour on Monday 25 Oct and Tuesday 26 Oct (11am - 2.30pm) and explore the effects of stressed Dorset rivers, including the River Frome where the once famous salmon run is now under extreme threat on Poole Habour.

Led by the brilliant eco-poet Helen Moore, please email wildsalmonleaps@gmail.com to book your place.
