Clydebelt Newsletter introduces CRIMP

Sam Gibson, one of our trained CRIMP volunteers in the Dalmuir Park area, is the Secretary of Clydebelt – a group dedicated to retaining and enhancing the heritage and green belt status of the Kilpatrick Hills and their surrounding environment in Clydebank, Dumbarton, Milngavie, Bearsden and Glasgow. Sam, along with six other citizen scientists, is sampling the Duntocher Burn and it’s tributaries for CRIMP (see the pictures below).  It is hoped that the strategic selection of sites within this relatively small catchment will enable the riverfly monitors to be be the first to detect any deterioration in water quality. Sam has written an article about CRIMP for the Clydebelt Newsletter – click here to read it and find out more about Clydebelt!
