If you are interested in ‘Caring for the Clyde’ there are a number of ways you can get involved as ‘Citizen Scientists’. You may wish to participate in the Clyde Riverfly Monitoring Partnership (‘CRIMP’, which was launched at our first meeting last year) or in our new secondary schools project, Clyde Living Lab. So if you live in the River Clyde catchment and are interested in looking after your local river, come to our Caring for the Clyde meeting on Saturday 8th March to find out more about our Citizen Science opportunities.
We are pleased to announce we have confirmed two guest speakers for the day:
Theo Thomas – Senior Programme Manager , Thames 21 – the leading waterways charity in London. Theo and the team work with communities across Greater London to improve their rivers, canals, ponds and lakes for people and wildlife. Theo specifically coordinates their Citizen Science programmes including their Love the Lea campaign.
Lizzie Willows – Education Officer, Wear Rivers Trust – Lizzie began working for the Trust in 2012, taking on and developing the educational projects that they run with school groups. She also liaises with volunteers and community group partners and co-ordinates their Riverfly monitoring network.
To reserve a place and for more information contact Lesley Deans at the Clyde River Foundation on Lesley.firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration for the meeting closes on Friday 21st February.
