Foresters’ Forest are working with the Love Your River Project which is getting local communities engaged with some of the monitoring already going on with Cinderford Brook. The project is supporting the training of local people to be part of river monitoring and also training up some existing Waterways’ Project volunteers.
On the 6th and 7th March there will be MoRPH (river habitat survey) and Riverfly (invertebrate survey) training for those who want to be involved. Priority will be given to residents around Cinderford Brook. These courses are extremely popular and places are limited so please get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
To register your interest please contact Georgia Spooner email@example.com and include your postcode.
For more information:
MoRPH looks at river morphology and if a natural river will have a good score and modified river a poor score.
Riverfly looks at seven typical river flies species and shrimp. A healthy river with good habitat will have a good score and a polluted river with poor habitat will have a low score.
You might be surprised what you find!
From creating habitats for our wildlife or improving our waterways, to recording oral histories or finding old photos, there’s always something going on to get involved in!
