About this event

Please sign up for your ticket to attend RMI training here. Places are limited so please make sure you can sample your river for at least 6 months (1 sample per month) before registering.

Thames21 and Vision RCL coordinate a Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (RMI) on the River Roding and nearby waterways, and are looking for more volunteers. 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.

RMI sampling uses the presence and abundance of invertebrates in a sample to gauge the health of your river. Free training in the sampling method will be provided by the Zoological Society of London.

YOU CAN ONLY ATTEND THIS SESSION IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE ONLINE THEORY SESSION AND PASSED A TEST (click here to sign up for the theory session)

In this session you will learn:

•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

More information is here; www.riverflies.org/rp-riverfly-monitoring-initiative

You must be over 16 to attend this course

Equipment and refreshments will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
