Places are available at the forthcoming Riverfly monitoring training course, being held at Latimer Park in the Chess Valley on Saturday 25th June.

Do you love your local river? Are you keen to learn more about life beneath the water's surface and help play a part in maintaining its health?  If so, you may want to become part of the growing ARMI (sic) of volunteers across the Colne catchment who are helping to monitor and protect their local rivers.


Organised by the Chilterns, Hertfordshire and Middlesex Riverfly Hub (a partnership set up to promote and support the development of riverfly monitoring across the hub area), the full day course provides attendees with training in the Angler's Monitoring Initiative survey technique along with broad understanding of the ecology of riverflies and their importance in the aquatic ecosystem as an indicator of ecosystem health.

The monitoring technique provides volunteers with a valuable tool with which to monitor the health of their local river, enabling  pollution incidents to be identified and reported to the Environment Agency ensuring appropriate action is taken.
