Keeping rivers cool manual, 2016

This manual is intended for those seeking to create shade over rivers (riparian shade).

Riparian shade helps maintain suitable freshwater habitats for biological communities at risk from the effects of climate change. Particularly salmon and brown trout (salmonids).

The guide has been created by the Keeping Rivers Cool partnership initiative and will be of use to anyone with an interest in riparian land management.
