Thanks to everyone who came along to Caring for the Clyde on Saturday 8th March. The event was well attended with a total of 51 delegates including representation from 18 organisations. The Clyde River Foundation’s Lesley Deans presented an overview of the Clyde Riverfly Monitoring Partnership (CRIMP) and outlined the way forward for the project, including the announcement of training availability for 2014. Special thanks go to Thames 21’s Theo Thomas and the Wear Rivers Trust’s Lizzie Willows, both of whom delivered insightful and inspirational talks about their work with people and rivers. We were happy to welcome representatives from six secondary schools across the Clyde catchment who came along to find out more about our new project in development, ‘Clyde Living Lab’.
We’ll be in touch very shortly with all of those budding citizen scientists who expressed an interest in training and picking up monitoring in 2014.
