The guys at Aberdeen Asset Management recently joined the Dee team for some work around the PIP Project at the beautiful Loch Callater. The guys were given a briefing and then set about a variety of jobs, including surveying the damage to tree enclosures, removing flood debris and helping River Bailiff to Colin Esson rebuild enclosures which had been almost completely destroyed.

Between 2013-2016, the Pearls in Peril Life+GB program aims to improve at least 70km of riverbank habitat through planting trees and establishing buffer strips. Storm Frank caused damage to enclosures and trees. The volunteers were there to help tidy up the debris and repair the damage to hep bring the enclosures back to their original state.

The guys had a super day and were really good fun to be around and we look forward to welcoming them back for another stint at volunteering. If you are interested in volunteer work with the River Dee Trust, get in touch at info@riverdee.org or call 01339 880411
