FOR NEW VOLUNTEERS!
Wed 1st Mar 2017
Riverfly Monitoring Workshop
09:30 am to 4:30 pm
The Moors National Park Centre, Danby, YO21 2NB
Cost: Adult - Free
We are running a Riverfly Monitoring workshop on 1 March 2017 for anyone who is interested in wildlife and the great outdoors, to help monitor the health of the River Esk Catchment.
The workshop will be held in The Moors National Park Centre, Danby, situated on the banks of the River Esk, and will run for a full day.
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 book a place or require further details, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01439 772700.
