Volunteers are being sought by Calderdale Council and the Environment Agency to help keep the River Calder at Mytholmroyd clear of vegetation.
As part of the ongoing works programme, local people are invited to come along to special training days to learn about vegetation management and how to tackle invasive species such as Himalayan balsam and Japanese knotweed.
The two volunteer days are being organised with Calder Future and will take place both mid week and at the weekend. Anyone who would like to volunteer should contact Gavin Roberts as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org
