Yellow Fish Events: Yate
June 11, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Did you know that surface drains at the sides of roads lead directly to your local watercourse? This means that anything poured down the surface drain such as litter, car oils or shampoo, weedkillers or mop bucket wastewater can harm river wildlife. Fish, invertebrates and other river life need our help.
BART are running an exciting Yellow Fish Campaign to raise awareness and encourage local communities to help improve water quality in the Bristol Frome. We are holding a series of Yellowfish events with local schools and local community groups.
We will be spraying yellow fish stencils onto the side of storm drains using non-toxic washable paint and putting up posters and handing out leaflets to local businesses in order to educate people on the fact that storm drains at the side of the road link directly to the nearest river or stream.
Event details are as follows:
- 9:30am – 10:30 Meet at Car Park on Moorland Rd, Yate, Bristol BS37 4BT
