Get your wellies on for wildlife research
AN ENVIRONMENTAL group has organised an event as part of Riverfly Day this weekend. The event has been organised by the Chilterns, Hertfordshire and Middlesex Riverfly Hub and is an opportunity to learn more about life beneath the water’s surface and discover the importance of riverflies as indicators of the health of our rivers.
Riverfly Day is aimed both at people already monitoring and those who are new to the science and would like to find out more.
The event will include talks by a range of experts in freshwater ecology and practical sessions after lunch, for you to try your hand at riverfly monitoring in the River Chess, or to sharpen your identification skills.
The day will run from 10am to 3pm at Latimer Park, in Latimer Road, Latimer.
People are asked to bring appropriate clothing and footwear if they plan to take part in the practical sessions in the afternoon.
The event costs £7 and tea/coffee and lunch is provided.
