The Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust is actively involved with education from primary level right through to post-doctoral work. Local pupils are often engaged in our river conservation projects and PhD candidates work with us on research projects.

We offer a range of educational activities to schools, including our educational river table, life in rivers invertebrate identification and river field trips.

If you have any questions about working with us on an educational project, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

” We really enjoyed the river table – the children were so enthusiastic about it!” – Ms. Gardener, Y3/4 Teacher, Kirby Hill Primary School.

The day was extremely organised, interesting and full of engaging activities which kept the children’s attention throughout. The water table was a fantastic experience for the children to see some of the geographical processes taking place and how these processes can be altered or stopped. The activities linked well to our science and physical geography learning.” – Mr. Breckon, Y5/6 Teacher, Grewelthorpe Church of England Primary School.
