About this event

Please sign up for your ticket to attend an online RMI theory training session here. You only need to attend one session, but must be able to attend in full at the time stated

The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and project partners across London are offering training in the Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (RMI). The RMI is a national scheme for monitoring the health of rivers, developed by the Riverfly Partnership. It gives trained volunteers the tools to detect and report pollution events, builds essential long-term datasets on the health of rivers and links volunteers with other organisations working to improve our rivers.

The full training this year is in two parts, an online theory session is mandatory before attending a practical session at a river.

The online theory training sessions are on:

  1. Thursday 5 August at 16:00 - 19:00
  2. Thursday 12 August at 16:00 - 19:00

RMI sampling uses the presence and abundance of invertebrates in a sample to gauge the health of your river. In the training you will learn:

•The theory of the RMI and how it helps improve rivers

•How to kick sample a river

•How to identify river invertebrates and score a sample

•What to do with the data you collect and how to get involved in Riverfly Monitoring Schemes across London

Once you have completed the online theory you can attend one of the following practical sessions on Saturday 14 August:
