If anyone from the Hogsmill area would like to get involved in Riverfly monitoring, this is a great opportunity.
The ZSL is offering training in RMI, Riverfly Monitoring Initiative, this is a national scheme for monitoring the health of rivers developed by the Riverfly Partnership.
To qualify for RMI training you must be able to sample the river for at least 6 months. Samples take about 30 minutes to do and are taken once per month.
You will learn:
- The background of the Hogsmill river
- How to kick-sample a river
- How to identify river invertebrates (flies)
- What to do with the RMI data
You will also meet other volunteers working up and down the Hogsmill river. Everyone involved will have a day out at London Zoo.
The training will take place at Kingston University Knights Park Campus on Saturday 17th October 11am - 4pm
