Education and Outreach
The Dee Catchment Partnership provides a broad educational and outreach programme. Throughout the year we attend a number of key events such as the Banchory River Festival, Cairngorms Nature Festival, Muir of Dinnet Fun Day and local interest activities.
We receive requests from interests groups, university students, training for survey work, and kids clubs, which we try and accomodate where possible. This year we have focused on delivering classroom activities to a handful of schools, focusing on flooding and learning how to become more resilient. Much fun has been had! Further information for schools can be found here.
Many of the projects that we are involved in include an education or outreach element, whether it be training key staff on natural flood management techniques, promoting to farmers the benefits of certain land management practises or engaging householders with new flood prevention schemes.
