Riverfly Monitoring Refresher Workshops for existing volunteers

We will be running two refresher workshops in February which I hope most of you can make. I have outlined each workshop below so that you can book onto the one that will suit you the best. But I suggest the following;
- If you have not been to a refresher workshop before Monday 27 February will be most suitable for you.
- If you have been to both refresher workshops before (Part 1 and Part 2) then the advanced refresher course on Tuesday 28 February is for you.
- There are one or two of you that have been to one refresher workshop before, in which case it is up to you on which day you think will be most suitable.

Please email me on a.cripps@northyorkmoors.org.uk if you would like to book a place, and please get in touch if you want to have a chat if you’re not sure which day is best for you!

First level refresher Monday 27th February. 10am – 4pm (ish), The Moors Centre, Danby
• Quick recap of sampling mythology and lifecycles
• Introduction to scientific keys
• Introduction to the ‘Guide to Freshwater Invertebrates’ book, known as the ‘Little Blue Book’
• Microscopes and identification session

Advanced refresher Tuesday 28th February. 10am – 4pm (ish), The Moors Centre, Danby
• Using the ‘Little Blue Book’ and other scientific keys
• Identifying lots of different samples that are not in the 8 groups we monitor
• Looking at family level (and sometimes beyond) within the 8 groups we monitor

(These workshops are funded through our Discovering the Esk - Phase 2 project, thanks to support from players of the People's Postcode Lottery).
