Workshops organised and run by external people or organisations

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. This free workshop aims to introduce new volunteers to this scheme.

What to Bring: Wellies, waders if you have them and lunch/drink

A flat, easy stroll around the boating lake, to observe at close quarters a surprisingly wide range of British Birds, lead by Martin Rule.

An ideal chance to pick out the differences between various species, with the help of a local birder who’s been leading walks for 26 years.

The Strat and Neet are 2 rivers that discharge into the sea at Bude, inproving the water quality on these rivers will in turn improve the bathing water quality at Summerleaze beach. 

Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Cleaner Seas Project and Riverfly Partnership are teaming up to prodive FREE training to anyone interested in conducting monthly kick sampling of the Strat and Neet rivers, to help monitor and so improve water quality of these rivers. 

About the survey:

In this workshop, ecologist and conservation teacher, Derek Green will help you to develop the knowledge and skills needed to identify the algal, invertebrate and sh species commonly found on Cornwall's rocky shores.
