Talking about citizen science – Conference for Nature

Last month, the Clyde River Foundation attended the 2015 Conference for Nature held at The Hub, Castlehill, Edinburgh. The aim of the conference was “to look at how innovative projects can help address the State of Nature in Scotland, linking organisations, businesses and individuals who are forming groundbreaking partnerships”. This was an excellent opportunity to share the contribution that citizen scientists involved in CRIMP have made to Caring for the Clyde. It was great to talk about what has been happening across the River Clyde catchment on a local level, in particular how riverfly monitoring can detect severe changes in water quality and thus help to safeguard the fauna of rivers and burns for future generations.
