River Detectives Workshop – South Bristol
November 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you live in or near South Bristol? Would you be interested in becoming a regular citizen science volunteer?
BART are recruiting volunteers in the South Bristol area to become River Detectives. Each River Detective is assigned a site on one of their local streams or rivers and will take monthly samples to monitor water quality.
We need volunteers on the River Malago, Pigeonhouse Stream, Collitors Brook and Brislington Brook. These watercourses run through Long Ashton, Ashton Vale, Bedminster, Bedminster Down, Bishopsworth, Withywood, HartCliffe and nearby areas.
There will be a training workshop at 2pm on Weds 15th November at Crox Bottom Nature Reserve. At the workshop, volunteers will: learn how to take water quality samples, choose sites, and pick up their water testing kits.
If you would like to be a River Detective in the South Bristol area but cannot make the workshop, please contact Amy (see below) and we should be able to make alternative arrangements.
If you are interested or have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
