Upcoming events

Saturday 4th September - Free River Guardian Training with Mersey Rivers

As part of Mersey Rivers' water quality improvement projects, they are looking to train some 'River Guardians' to monitor water quality in Rivacre Brook and Dibbinsdale Brook.

"River Guardians are volunteers for the Mersey Rivers Trust. They are vital to the work we do as the information they collect allows for ongoing monitoring of local watercourses to identify issues and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions. The sampling will be a combination of chemical analysis using simple test kits and invertebrate 'kick' sampling.

You can find out more about our River Guardian program on our website."

Volunteers will be required to attend a training session and then sample a spot on the river roughly once a month.

If you wish to attend the training or have any questions please email Rebecca Howard (rebecca@merseyrivers.org) or Paul Corner (paulc@merseyrivers.org).

 

Date: Saturday 4th September 2021

Time: 10:00am until approximately 2:30pm

Location: Rivacre Valley Country Park (TBC)

All equipment and lunch will be provided.

 

Please note places are limited.
