We are always amazed by the volunteers who support our work on the catchment. Throughout the year we are fortunate to have dozens of individuals who are eager and willing to help us maintain the River Dee's wonderful environment and help prevent the loss of our native wildlife. The latest group came from one of the UK's leading Engineering companies, Costain. Their enthusiasm and hard work, is greatly appreciated; they and all of our volunteers are making a real difference throughout the catchment. The guys have written a short account of their time with us, which can be viewed on Costain's website here.

As a charity, the River Dee Trust has to raise funds to support its work on the River Dee. We have been humbled by the level of support throughout the year. In the last couple of months, we have had two fundraising events, which have raised £11500, all thanks to the community and River Dee family.

The smolt tagging and tracking project is a three year programme of work. Fifty smolts, captured in the lower catchment, were fitted with internal acoustic tags and tracked in spring 2016. These smolts were tracked as they migrated through the lower 22 miles of the Dee and inner harbour.

The first year of the smolt tagging and tracking project is nearly complete.

Tackling invasive non-native plants along the banks of the River Dee – such as Japanese knotweed, giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and North American skunk cabbage - has become a priority for the River Office because of their potential impact on our river and its existing, native species.
