The tale of a rare fish and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring it back to the River Severn
Hundreds of thousands of twaite shad used to migrate up the River Severn, past Worcester, every spring but weirs built in the 1840’s blocked this annual migration. Thanks to some modern engineering solutions in and around the city, their route is about to be restored…
Join our FREE virtual talk to discover more about this wonderful rare fish, what the Unlocking the Severn project is doing in Worcester to help them swim freely once more, and how you can play a part.
The talk will be tailored to adults but is also suitable for older children. Please book your place on Eventbrite. The talk will be hosted on Zoom and joining details will be sent out to participants in advance.
This talk is being run by Unlocking the Severn as part of the Worcester Festival.
