|RRC Themed Workshops|
|Themed workshops organised by RRC are a response to a recognised need to focus on a particular area of river restoration. They aim to bring practitioners together to share and discuss their experiences. Following the format of a 1 to 2 day event with presentations, discussion sessions and site visits, themed workshops are open to anyone with an interest or involvement in that specific area and are discounted for members.

|RRC Training workshops|
|Training workshops have so far provided a general introduction to the concepts of river restoration, rehabilitation and enhancement. Participants are provided with an overview of river restoration and examples of the range of works occurring in the UK. Discussion sessions and practical exercises on case studies give participants the opportunity to apply the information gained from presentations on the day.
