Training in Twechar

We’re pleased to say that more volunteers have been added to the growing number of CRIMPers across the Clyde. This year residents in Twechar held their own training course and will soon have new monitoring locations on the Board Burn to add to the increasing number of sites throughout the Kelvin catchment. Also in attendance at the workshop were two volunteers from Strathgryfe Angling Association and Alistair Baird who volunteers with Quarriers. Participants used the Board Burn that runs through Twechar as their practice sampling site. After lunch everyone had a closer look at the specimens under the microscope and identification skills were put to the test. Luckily they all passed and are now certified to start monitoring their local stretch! We are very grateful to Foundation Scotland for supporting the Twechar community in starting their own riverfly monitoring scheme on the Board Burn.
