Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - WHAT’S ON THIS WEEKEND -

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.
