Jayne joined SCRT after working for the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust on a project to co-ordinate and train volunteers to carry out walkover surveys. Prior to this she was at Natural England, working closely with partners across Cumbria to develop freshwater plans. She gained an educational background with a BSc in Environmental Biology from the University of Nottingham and an MSc in Ecology and Conservation from Lancaster University, during which she spent some time at the Freshwater Biological Association on Windermere. Jayne is keen to get stuck into working in the fantastic location of South Cumbria, delivering improvements to our local freshwater environment.
