Riverfly Monitoring Workshops
All Events > Riverfly Monitoring Workshops


Tue 2nd Aug 2016 - Wed 3rd Aug 2016

We are running two Riverfly Monitoring workshops, for anyone who is interested in wildlife and the great outdoors, to help monitor the health of the River Esk Catchment.

Each workshop will be one full day and they are being held in The Moors National Park Centre, Danby, situated on the banks of the River Esk.

The workshop, led by Stuart Crofts (River Entomologist and expert Fly-fisherman who has competed in World Fly Fishing Championships), will run through how to collect samples from the river followed by how to identify key invertebrate groups.

Once you are a trained volunteer we ask that you help us by committing to monitor a small area of the river. It's really straightforward - you will be allocated a site that suits you and then you collect six samples (once a month from May to October each year) and see what you find. There is a simple form to fill in and then you can send us your results.

Understanding what groups of invertebrates are in the River Esk helps us to assess the water quality and health of the Esk Catchment. This will help us to target our efforts more effectively when carrying out catchment restoration work.

Please contact Alex Cripps (Catchment Partnership Officer) if you would like to attend or require further details.

Please ensure you book your place by emailing Alex on a.cripps@northyorkmoors.org.uk or calling 01439 772700

We look forwards to seeing you there!
