Education and Outreach

One of our key activities is to work with local schools, colleges and universities. Proving opportunities to learn more about the water environment through organising site visits, classroom sessions and assemblies. We also support students wishing to undertake river based projects for undergraduate and postgraduate research. 

Along with schools we are always keen to increase knowledge of the water environment and the pressures it faces, ensuring people are informed and aware of how they can help. We are more than happy to provide advice and guidance to community groups as well as give talks and presentations.
