The Angler’s Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (ARMI) helps rivers to be monitored more widely and at greater frequency than is possible by the Environment Agency alone. Volunteers take kick samples from the river bed each month, recording the presence and abundance of invertebrate groups which are very sensitive to pollution and are therefore good indicators of water quality. We will be running several workshops throughout the county this year with the aim of introducing new volunteers to this scheme.
Please bring: Wellies, waders if you have them and lunch/drink
