The North York Moors National Park celebrates everything that's great about our waterways with a rivers festival on Sunday 28 August.

Visitors can learn about wildlife, go on a river walk, watch fishing demonstrations, have a go at fly casting , led by professional fisherman Olly Shepherd from Fly Fishing Yorkshire, and get up-close with river bugs.

The event, taking place at The Moors National Park Centre in Danby is being organised with the Yorkshire Est Rivers Trust and is part of the Discovering the Esk project, which has received a funding boost from the Postcode Local Trust.

Organisers say the project increases opportunities for people of all ages in the Esk Valley and wider area to get involved in environmentally focused activities and community monitoring schemes such as Riverfly Monitoring, Adopt a Stream, Young Angler Initiative and Salmon in the Classroom. The festival will help to advance local people’s knowledge, and provide them with the opportunity and support to learn about and care for their local river.
