After centuries of human impact our landscape’s ability to cope with high rainfall has been reduced. With climate change science predicting an increase in heavy rain events, we need to change the way we think about managing flood risk.
Caitlin Pearson from West Cumbria Rivers Trust will explain how we’re planning to work with farmers and landowners to reduce flood risk to Bootle by slowing the water coming off the hills – a process known as Natural Flood Management.
Refreshments will be provided and there’ll be time for questions.
Tuesday 16 April 2019, 7pm.
The talk starts at 7:10pm and the event generally finishes at around 8:30pm.
