Volunteering

The Rochdale Canal is yours to enjoy and we need your help to look after it.

Get involved in the Rochdale Canal, there are a host of volunteering opportunities including tree planting, hedge laying, litter picking, dry stone walling and wildlife surveying.  All upcoming local events are advertised in the Calendar of events or if you want to help on a more regular basis go to Waterscape to find out how to become a waterways volunteer or about joining a canal adoption scheme. No experience is needed as training and instruction will be given.

The Canal & River Trust hold an annual towpath tidy in March – keep an eye out for the latest news.
